Description

Since 1780, when the race was first staged, the Epsom Derby has become the blue riband of flat-racing. This book covers the history of the race from Sir Gordon Richards' emotional and long-awaited triumph in 1953 right up to the 2004 event. It features Lester Piggott's record-breaking nine wins and charts success of famous trainers such as Vincent O'Brien and Henry Cecil, as well as looking at famous horses such as Sea Bird, Nijinksly and Shergar. Featuring a detailed analysis of every race, comprehensive statistical information and a wealth of anecdotes from each year, this book is beautifully illustrated.show more
