The racetrack is Les Carlyon's world: the banter of the trainers, the bustle of the mounting yards, the dawn rituals in Saratoga and Hong Kong, the thrilling wins of unpredictable racehorses from Kentucky to Caulfield. Spanning more than twenty-five years on the track, Tales From The Turf is a passing parade of people and horses, winners and losers: from Carbine and Phar Lap to Vo Rogue and Kingston Town, Empire Rose, Schillaci, Saintly, Sunline, Octagon, Might And Power and Northerly. With pieces from the 1970s (Bart Cummings before he was a Cup legend) and recent stories including a moving farewell to Colin Hayes. Venture inside the world of T.J Smith, Mick Dittman, Damien Oliver, Shane Dye, Vic Rail, Bart Cummings, Gai Waterhouse, Lee Freeman, Jack Denham, the Ingham Brothers and Colin Hayes. Les's eye is both sharp and tender, his writing is so vivid you can almost feel the steaming breath of the mighty gallopers on your cheek and he is under no illusions about the reality of this glorious, awful, fortune-making, heart-breaking sport.

Britain and Ireland's Top 100 Racehorses of All Time author Robin Oakley takes us on a canter through the colourful world of horseracing. Join him as he shares evocative personal stories of being there at racing legends’ key moments, such as Frankie Dettori riding seven winners in a day at Ascot. He debates whether jockeys are sportsmen or masochists – jump jockeys can expect a fall on average every 13 rides – and reminisces about unusual achievements, including trainer Sirrell Griffith’s Cheltenham Gold Cup win after milking his 100 cows that morning. Tales From the Turf is an extraordinary account from the Spectator’s long-running Turf columnist, and a man for whom horseracing is a lifetime’s passion.
