Description:
The Art of the Race uses the beautiful black and white photography of Amanda Lockhart to tell the story of horse-racing from start to finish, from the moment of the racehorse's conception to the highs and lows of action on the track.

With support and co-operation from horse-racing's key figures and organisations, including The Jockey Club, Amanda was granted unique access to all aspects of this hugely popular sport.

The book brings to the public eye hitherto private scenes of some of the most famous stud farms, training yards and racetracks in Britain and Ireland. It includes shots of young jockeys learning to ride on mechanical horses and saddlers and silk-makers plying their craft.

On the race day itself, we see valets polishing boots, a top-hatted doctor awaiting patients in the jockeys' hospital at Royal Ascot and an anxious looking Ruby Walsh in the changing room on Grand National Day.

From Sheikhs to stall-handlers, anyone who plays a role in racing has a place in this book.
