An interestingly wayward memoir, exploring [...] the vibrant mixture of equine beauty and human ugliness to be found on the racetrack -- Jane Shilling * Evening Standard *
A great father-son memoir, and a good book about horses, too -- William Leith, 4 stars * Scotsman *
You needn't love horses to find this idiosyncratic memoir a joy -- 4 stars * Lady *
This is desperately sad, life-affirming and just about wonderful. It is the book every father would want his son to write about him -- Eileen Battersby * Irish Times *
As a memoir, an elegy and a piece of investigative journalism, it dazzles * The Economist *
