    I'm a Dick Francis junkie. I believe I read all of his mysteries in order. Still remember being at loose ends for a bit after I finished the last one. Stumbled on this years later and quite enjoyed it. My daughter is a horsewoman (although she deplores thoroughbred racing) so I try to do some reading in this category. Would definitely recommend for the Dick Francis fan, or anyone who want to know a little more about racing.

    Yes, I enjoyed Francis' writing so much that I read his biography of a jokey I'd never heard of. And I liked it.

    Horse racing has been called the sport of kings and it took tough, wiry men to compete as jockies. Lester Piggott was one of these men and this is the story of his career.
