Overview

“The Race Horse” is a classic guide to buying, training, and keeping race horses. This comprehensive handbook contains a wealth of timeless information that will be of considerable utility to professional trainers, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: “Procuring the Yearling”, “Stabling”, “Food”, “Water”, “Clothing and Horse Gear”, “Shoeing”, “Stable Management”, “Physic”, “Lads and Riding”, “Breaking and Training of Yearlings”, “Trials”, “Training Grounds and Courses”, “Remarks on Training”, “Entering Horses and Other Matters”, “Starting”, “Judging”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on architecture.
