Galloper Jack - The Remarkable Story of the Man Who Rode a Real War Horse (Paperback): Brough Scott Galloper Jack - The Remarkable Story of the Man Who Rode a Real War Horse (Paperback)

This is Brough Scott's moving biography of his grandfather - the author of the best-selling Warrior. 'Galloper' Jack Seely was at the heart of some of the most important events of the first part of the 20th century. His early life was one of adventure, sailing to the antipodes, saving the crew of a French ship wrecked off the coast of the Isle of Wight and later raising a squadron and joining the Boer War, where he was awarded the DSO for his bravery. On his return to England he was elected Conservative MP for the Isle of Wight, but just like his close friend Winston Churchill, later crossed over to the Liberal party. At the outbreak of the First World War, Seely went to the Western Front and there made his name as a humane and innovative leader. Written with honesty and wit, this is an exciting, unusual and thought-provoking biography of a man who has been unfairly treated by history.

It is an often-forgotten fact that horses played an important part in Winston Churchill's life. They were his escape in childhood, his challenge in youth, his transport in war, his triumph in sport and his diversion in old age. Renowned author, broadcaster and former jockey, Brough Scott, follows in Churchill's hoofprints from galloping his pony in Blenheim Park, to topping the riding class whilst army training at Sandhurst, taking part in a famous cavalry charge in Sudan, playing polo in India, hunting foxes in Leicestershire and breeding racehorses near his home in Kent, after a minor interlude out of the saddle to tend to the historic task of winning the Second World War.

For more than four decades the elegant, slightly foppish figure of trainer Henry Cecil has been adulated by racing fans. He has handled countless top horses - his '25 English Classics' include four Derby winners - and won dozens of big races around the world. But his story is far from a chronicle of unbroken success. A sharp downturn in his racing fortunes in the late 1990s was accompanied by all manner of personal trials, including well publicised marital problems and then cancer, but the dogged manner in which he has climbed back to the top was rewarded in 2011 by the presence in his Newmarket yard of the wonder horse Frankel. Based on extensive research and interviews with those closest to "Cecil", and shot through with Brough Scott's unparalleled inside knowledge of the sport, this will be the racing book not only of the year, but of the decade.

Sprinter Sacre's 2016 Champion Chase success generated a level of bedlam previously unseen at the Cheltenham Festival.His matchless redemptive story reaching its heady climax as racing's public seemingly willed the impossible, possible. Legendary status was already assured yet it was Sprinter Sacre's return from the brink, his battle with adversity that has taken this horse of the ages into such rarefied territory.Drawing on the unique resources of the Racing Post, including many previously unseen photos, an extraordinary tale is told of a racehorse whose incredible looks are, for once, matched by his achievements. Introduced to fences in 2011, he soon built an aura of invincibility that all presumed would last for years to come, but, in December 2013 that spectacularly vanished as the tribulation of atrial fibrillation reared its head.While he battled through, his greatest moments were in his past. Despite the patience and expertise of trainer Nicky Henderson and vet Celia Marr, whose ultrasound and ECG readings are here to see, the spark of brilliance had fizzled out.Then in late 2015 that spark flickered into life before setting the sporting world alight as his story reached its most epic crescendo.

When Frankie Dettori stormed to victory on Golden Horn in the 2015 Derby, the effervescent Italian jockey was writing yet another extraordinary chapter in a remarkable sporting story. This tribute to hugely popular sportsman draws on the unique resources of the Racing Post to chronicle the Dettori career as never before. The son of a Milanese Classic-winning jockey has been Champion jockey on three occasions and has ridden such equine superstars as Dubai Millennium, Lochsong, Lammtarra, Daylami and his first Derby winner Authorized. He made worldwide headlines when winning every contest on a seven-race card in September 1996, which made him a household name. The Dettori story has also had its darker side: surviving a plane crash in 2000 in which the pilot was killed; a six-month suspension in December 2012 for contravening racing's drugs rules; losing the lucrative job as first jockey to Sheikh Mohammed's Godolphin operation. But Frankie has always bounced back, and his next flying dismount is never far away.
