Henderson's Heroes : The Story of an Unbelievable Season Hardback
Edited by Andrew Pennington
The 2012-2013 jumps season was memorable in many ways, but the figure who dominated the season was trainer Nicky Henderson.
Horses such as triple Champion Hurdle winner See You Then, Remittance Man and Fondmort had already made Henderson one of the legends of jump racing, but in the 2012-2013 season he sent out the winners of big race after big race.
The book celebrates these equine stars and the man who sent them out, in words and fabulous pictures.
Top of the list is Sprinter Sacre whose superstar status grew ever greater as his glorious season progressed, ensuring that this magnificent horse has been acclaimed as the best steeplechaser since Arkle; the outstanding young chaser Bobs Worth who captured in brilliant style two of the sport's most glittering prizes, the Hennessy Gold Cup and the Cheltenham Gold Cup; Long Run underlined his place in jumping history with a hard fought second win in the King George; and Simonsig,the handsome grey novice chaser who went through the season unbeaten, his finest moment coming with victory in the Racing Post Arkle Chase at the Festival.
