Jump racing rouses very strong passion and emotions amongst its many thousands of followers.
Two names have been synonymous with that passion, the former leading jockey Mick Fitzgerald and Cheltenham Racecourse, home of the Festival in March.
This large-format, spectacularly illustrated celebration of jump racing in all its moods - its equine and human heroes, its greatest races, its wonderful variety of racecourses, its most memorable moments many of them at Cheltenham and the magnetic characters both human and equine will be documented in Fizgerald's own inimitable and forthright way. "Racing Post" will call on its massive library of award-winning images to conjure up the magic that is Jump racing.
Mick Fitzgerald's best-selling autobiography, "Better Than Sex" (ISBN 978-1-905156-56-6), was published in 2008.
