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.

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.

very happy with the unicorn poo book! It was a gift for a 7 year old who has found great enjoyment with her new book. Lots of things to look out for and having her name to find on each page has made it all the more special. Very happy over-all

When I first tried to place my order…

When I first tried to place my order for Swallows and Amazon personalised hardback the website would not allow me to enter my message. I telephoned and was told by a very helpful lady who I think her name was Sandra told me it was a technical problem and she would get back to me when it was resolved. I was amazed that at 9am the next morning she called me to say all was now fixed.The customer service was great and when the book was received it was really good quality. Very impressed and would recommend.

Promises of delivery date..completely…

Promises of delivery date..completely wrong and not so helpful folk. Product...much, much smaller and thinner than I had believed. Not sure I would repeat my experience with company.

Lisa jane Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 29 Sep 2020

Not great

To be honest I was slightly let down... the book basically has my nieces name on the front of the book and that's it! I thought her name would have been involved in the story?! €28 is alot of money for something I could have done myself!

cjack Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 29 Sep 2020

Nicely presented book.

The book was presented very nicely and looks very engaging. There were two pronoun errors in the text but given that it took a while to arrive, I don't have time for an exchange before the date I intend to present the book. The receiver is not at an age where he will be bothered around pronouns too much but likely to be delighted to see himself and his beloved dog in the story. It would be good if there were a range of different adventures to choose from.

The service given and the final product…

The service provided and the final product were both fantastic. Having made an inputting error (wrong year!) at the point of order, the error was picked up, queried and corrected by a member of the In The Book team, before going to print. My parents were simply delighted with the finished product; they described it as beautifully presented, a trip down memory lane and a real keep sake to share with friends and family. Thank you In The Book.

The Haynes guide for Pensioners…

The Haynes guide for Pensioners dedicated to Arthur was a huge hit! His thank you card about it read that he had started out with chuckles and giggles but it became laugh out loud funny once he had claimed it from the rest of the family!
