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
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1904 to the present

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.

This is the perfect gift for a very dear friend, I can't believe that its so tailored for him, I really didn't think I would find anything as suitable.

Product is brilliant for any horse lover, it's a lot bigger than it looks aswell and I needed it for a special occasion and it turned up with the express delivery a day after ordering, was even earlier than I anticipated!Can't fault this product or the company, I was 100% satisfied!

Bennyboy Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

This book is a birthday present for my brother who is a regular race goer and has been for many years. He has a small flutter everyday and I know he will find this book perfect for him. It arrived on time and the packaging was perfect. The quality of the book is superb and it is personalised. I would definitely recommend this company and I am sure I will use them again in the future

JanIbz Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

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.

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!! SCAM wasted 28 pound on this for my sons birthday very disappointed and angry. Would not recommend to anyone. Very arrogant on the phone when calling to ask about the item. And email reply wasn't any better. Save your money and either build a bear on the website or go elsewhere like etsy or not on the highstreet. If i could minuses stars I would as even 1 is to much

The book itself is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully illustrated. I couldn’t upload a photo onto the website, it kept sticking, so I ordered the book on a bank holiday Friday evening and it was confirmed at 2000h same night. I e mailed in the book with a photo attached the following morning Saturday at 0730h and asked if anything could possibly be done to attach it. I received a reply that it was too late, already in production, nothing could be done. In 12hrs ? I was really disappointed - I wish I had contacted CS before placing my original order. Also I assumed Alice would somehow be woven into the stories as advertised “in the books” other stories but The Ultimate Princess Collection does not offer this. Your child’s name appears on the top of each page but they are actually not IN the stories. If I ordered again I would be much more aware of what is actually on offer. In The Book does not mean IN every story, so read carefully before ordering as I’m sad to say I didn’t do.

Michael Kaye Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 19 Apr 2021

A great cover and fronts piece.

A great cover and fronts piece. However, Some of the early pages were unreadable even with glasses and a magnifying glass in use. Some of the pages of the 1960s were unreadable as well, and one was even shown to be torn and disheveled as if lifted from a dustbin.

Gemma Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 19 Apr 2021

Absolutely brilliant company. Bought the Leeds united memory book It is brilliant cant wait to give the gift because I know the recipient is going to be absolutely amazed by it.

The child's name only appears on the opening page of each story. Other companies replace the name of the character in the story with the child's name. The format and quality of the book prints and presentation are good.

Very disappointed in this book for so much money - unfortunately I believed my granddaughter would appear in the story not just at the top of the pages - feel as if I’ve been conned!
