Book Description

March 1 2012
This book contains 168 photographs of thoroughbred racing taken by award-winning photographer Arthur Frank in the United States, France, and Ireland, and is introduced by a personal essay by The New York Times sportswriter Joe Drape. The photographs capture the beauty and excitement of one of the world's most popular sports by depicting the development of thoroughbred race horses from their days as foals, through training sessions, and then to the track. It also highlights the unique relationships between the horses and those individuals who bred them, own them, train them, care for them, and bet on them. As the photographer is more interested in the sport of horse racing than with celebrity, the book offers a unique humanistic depiction of the sport of kings and concludes with a tribute to the winners and losers.

Loved this book, having met the author (photographer) on a recent trip to France- his love of horses and racing shows, and for people unfortunate not to have discovered racing in other countries, it really takes you there

This collection was a bit disappointing but not real costly, so still contains some interesting photos but nothing to write home about
