Product Description

You'll love this because...

Via newspaper clippings from the past, you can relive the majestic history of horse racing. 

  • Personalise with any name and message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • Tabloid size editions with colour pages available from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1904 to 2016

Relive the history of horse racing through newspaper clippings in this personalised horse racing book. With coverage beginning in 1904, the year Pretty Polly won the Fillies Triple Crown, this timeless piece of historical horse racing memorabilia takes you back over a century, revisiting all the key moments from Epsom, Aintree, Cheltenham and many more, right up until Harzard’s 2016 Derby victory.

A sport that has taken place since Roman times, the Jockey Club was first established in 1750, and since then, Great Britain has become host to some of the world’s most iconic races, such as the Cheltenham Gold Cup, the Epsom Derby and of course the Aintree Grand National. There are perhaps two names most synonymous with horse racing in the United Kingdom, one a jockey, the other a horse; Lester Piggott’s professional career spanned four decades, and saw him win nine Epsom Derbies, five 2000 Guineas and eight St Leger Stakes, leading to him being regarded by many as the greatest flat race jockey of all time, while Thoroughbred Red Rum won the Grand National an unprecedented three times in 1973, 1974 and 1977, a record that to this day is yet to be broken. Also included in this book are the incredible stories of suffragette Emily Davison, who threw herself in front of the King’s horse at the 1913 Derby, and the 1928 Grand National, when only two horses finished the race.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

I bought this for my father in law for his 70th birthday and he loves it - he even took it to the bookies to show it off! The leather book is really good quality and the engraving made it look extra special. Great gift for someone who has loved horse racing for many years.

We wanted a memorable gift for a big Birthday for a horse racing enthusiast and this product ticked all the boxes. The recipient loved it. It was a unique product found through google. It was within our price range and was good value for money. We went for the premium leatherette cover which was lovely.

Very happy with the book

Very happy with the book. Bought for my granddaughter's 5th birthday. She was delighted and so surprised to see her name, her photograph and a message from granny and grampa inside. A very special keepsake.

I always read reviews before purchasing…

I always read reviews before purchasing anything online and I was a bit sceptical about a purchase because of a couple of reviews I read. When I received my order, I couldn't have been happier! The quality was just as I had hoped, beautiful and personalized. It will make the perfect gift!!

The book is great. My 8 year old grandson loves it. Unfortunately due to an error on my part, the photo I uploaded was erased somehow.

Perfect! Cannot fault this experience at all

I came across this site, without ever hearing of it before! Thanks to Google ads! So glad I clicked the link as I found the perfect book for a little boys birthday present - it was a dinosaur book, personalised! Was really happy with the quality of the book, I was a bit nervous about how the photo would come out but it was clear and the perfect size! Delivery was quicker than expected. Overall happy with the product and customer service! I have recommended this to friends
