The Encyclopedia of British Horse Racing offers an innovative approach to one of Britain's oldest sports. While it considers the traditional themes of gambling and breeding, and contains biographies of human personalities and equine stars, it also devotes significant space to neglected areas. Entries include:

  • social, economic and political forces that have influenced racing
  • controversial historical and current issues
  • legal and illegal gambling, and racing finance
  • the British impact on world horseracing
  • history and heritage of horseracing
  • links between horse racing and the arts, media and technology
  • human and equine biographies
  • venues associated with racing
  • horseracing websites

The Encyclopedia of British Horse Racing provides a unique source of information and will be of great interest to sports historians as well as all those whose work or leisure brings them into the world of racing.
