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 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

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.

Great Products

I ordered three books (two with plush toys) for my young nieces and nephews back in America. They arrived in a reasonable amount of time given the distance and the pandemic, and the children love them.
