Arkle. Four decades after he raced, his name continues to reverberate in the folk memory of horseracing. Every true jumping fan still goes misty-eyed at the mere mention of the horse known simply as 'Himself'. When in 2004 the "Racing Post" polled its readers to find their favourite racehorse of all, he won as emphatically as he had won so many big races. But he has long been more than just a famous racehorse. He was - and remains - a national hero in his native Ireland and an equine icon the world over. There has simply never been a horse to match him, in racing record or in the public affection. The paperback edition of this wonderful book celebrates the greatest of all chasers in words and in a superb collection of photographs and paintings, many never previously published. It is a fitting tribute to the horse of whom the "Racing Post" wrote: 'We have not seen his like since - and nor are we ever likely to'.
