100 major horse racing venues with detail of each one's history and heritage from BBC journalist, Cornelius Lysaght. Text is accompanied by contemporary photography and detailed diagrams created by Collins, the world-leading publisher of maps and atlases, making it an essential purchase or gift for any horse racing fan.

The book features each track in regional order, starting with the famous Epsom Downs course in England then taking in renowned locations such as Churchill Downs, Royal Ascot and Flemington Racecourse, all the way up to the state-of-the-art Meydan Racecourse in Dubai.

More unusual and lesser known courses are also featured including the Pardubicka in Czech Republic, St Moritz in Switzerland and Ngong in Kenya.

Each course is accompanied by an array of statistics and the latest photographs from these scenic venues. It also features alphabetical and `by country' indices for ease of reference.
