With elegant production and gripping images, the book chronicles the social and economic changes which have brought the sport's ups and downs - like the development of sponsorships and syndicate ownership, the near loss of the Grand National, the growing domination of the Cheltenham Festival and the growth of all-weather racing to meet the bookies' demands for betting shop fodder.
