'At my Devon school, lessons were optional and I did not go to a lot. A friend's father took us to Buckfastleigh racecourse where there were bookmakers and tic-tac men, Tote windows and people asking each other what they knew (at school, people only told you what you did not know). I became hooked'. Sir Clement Freud was a man of many parts, but his devotion to racing and betting had been lifelong and unwavering. He owned several racehorses, one of whom was named Weareagrandmother after Margaret Thatcher's announcement of the birth of her first grandchild. As well as riding in several races he was a fearless punter, winning a fortune after backing himself to win the 1973 Ely by-election at 33-1. His racing journalism is characterised by a wit and understanding unmatched by any other writer. This book brings together the very best of Freud on racing - which is, in effect, the very best of Clement Freud.
