  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box for long-term protection
  • 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.

Lovely book and good quality but print is extremely small

  • In the Book Team 27 Jun 2022

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    Our Sports Books consist of the Daily Mirror newspaper, which is originally printed as an A3 tabloid size. As you have ordered the book in the A4 format, the contents has to be shrunk down from A3 and therefore this will make the headlines and articles smaller. Please note, we do offer this in the original size of A3.

    As a gesture, we have applied a further 10% discount to your order, which has been refunded to you. We hope will help towards rectify your dissatisfaction.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenienced caused.

    Kindest Regards
    The In The Book Team

Unique Christmas gift for my father in law and his love of horse racing

Crooked printing of personal message

  • In the Book Team 14 Dec 2021

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear that you are not happy with your book.

    The personalisation labels are manually put into the book by a member of the Production Team, therefore to receive one that is not straight is unfortunately a human error, which we do apologise for. We make these labels easy peel, so they can be removed from the book without ripping the pages and can be replaced. A replacement label has now been requested for you, which you will receive over the next few days.

    Please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    Kindest Regards
    The In The Book Team
