Training the Racehorse, first published in 1976 and widely considered the standard work in its field, will prove invaluable to anyone training, or aspiring to train, racehorses; it will also provide a captivating and thought-provoking insight for all racing fans. Tim Fitzgeorge-Parker provides a wealth of practical information on all aspects of finding, breaking, training and placing racehorses, and since this knowledge is drawn from his own experience and intimacy with many top trainers, the text is liberally sprinkled with anecdotes highlighting the humour and drama of the racing scene. A former pupil of the great Atty Persse, the author is a strong advocate of drawing upton the wisdom of ages. Making the point that our forefathers equine knowledge was born of necessity, he shows us impressive links between the methods of the old masters and those of today's most successful trainers. Now revised and enlarged to take account of the recent changes to the Rules of Racing, alterations to courses, and innovations such as all-weather tracks, Training the Racehorse will both entertain and instruct a new generation of racing enthusiasts.
