The great Fred Winter was rider of Grand National winners Sundew & Kilmore, trainer of two more with Jay Trump & Anglo, a Cheltenham Gold Cup with Midnight Court and many other championship races with the likes of Bula, Crisp, Pendil, Lanzarote and Killiney – he previously rode for the successful trainer Ivor Herbert and in this fascinating book, the author takes us into the world of Fred Winter’s Uplands stable

This is a first edition published by Pelham Books in London in 1974 - it is a 186 page hardback, blue cloth cover with gold lettering on the spine complete with dustjacket measuring 8.75" (22m) x 5.5” (14cm) x 1" (2.5cm) ISBN 0720707129

The book has a previous owner’s name on the first blank page but is otherwise in excellent condition with no stains or age related discolouration – as you can see from the photos, the dustjacket is also in great condition and has been price-clipped

A great read for the turf enthusiast, it will make a fine addition to any racing library
