Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

In the ten years since he retired from the saddle. Brough Scott's regular newspaper articles have won him countless admirers (and a clutch of awards, including, most recently 'Sports Journalist of the Year') for their special blend of energy, wit, humanity and hard fact. Here is the best of Brough Scott, a marvellously evocative encapsulation of the last ten years' racing. In these pages we relive great days at the Grand National and the Derby; see again such famous horses as Red Rum and Shergar. But we also go behind the scenes to watch men like Lester Piggott and Jonjo O'Neill with the special understanding of a life once shared. We spend days with sheikhs, stable lads, spivs and stud hands. We even get to the horse orphanage. Everything that is racing is here, from a dark November day at Newcastle to the glories of Ascot in high summer; form billion dollar Derby winners to the forty-guinea family pet. "He is the best company at the races. Sunday mornings are nothing without him," writes Alastair Burnet in his Foreword. Superbly illustrated with photographs by award-winning Gerry Cranham and Chris Smith, On and Off the Rails is a must for every follower of the racing game. In great condition, no signs of any damage. Signed by Brough Scott
