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 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.

Unacceptable delivery length especially for paid delivery

I purchased 2 baby books on 05/07/2021 and paid £4.99 for the delivery. The delivery suppose to arrive between 7 and 9 of July, 2021. I bought these books for my pregnant wife birthday on the 13/07/2021. I received the item on 22/07/2021 which already way passed my wife birthday. My worst online shopping experience ever!
