THESPORTS BOOK AWARDS INTERNATIONAL AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF THE YEARKieren Fallon was one of the world's greatest jockeys, but his career was littered with controversial incidents. Now, in his powerful and honest autobiography, he tells all. The most eagerly anticipated racing autobiography for many years Greg Wood, Guardian As a jockey, Kieren Fallon had a unique rapport with his horses, often coaxing them to victory when others had struggled. His skill and commitment made him a punter's favourite. His magnificent record, which saw him crowned Champion Jockey on six occasions, ensured he became one of racing's biggest stars. But that was only ever part of the story. Having come over to the UK from Ireland to make his name, Fallon's combative nature brought him to the attention of the racing authorities. When he dragged a rival jockey off his mount in 1994, he began a series of run-ins that would eventually see him on trial in the Old Bailey, accused of race fixing. Although the judge eventually ruled that there was no case to answer, the damage to his career and reputation had been done. In Form, Kieren Fallon provides a searingly honest account of his life, and the pressures he faced to get to the top of his sport, where winning was never enough, and where relaxation came in the shape of a bottle of vodka or a meal that had to be ';flipped' immediately to ensure he maintained his weight. He worked with some of the best trainers and won all the biggest races, but true happiness only ever really came to him when he was on the back of a horse a joy that he still feels now that he has retired from racing as he rides work early in the morning.Brutally honest as well as entertaining, this is a unique sporting memoir.
Random House presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Centaur by Declan Murphy and Ami Rao, read by Stephen Hogan and Julie Maisey.As heard on BBC Radio 4: Midweek.Coping with your own death, when you are not yet dead, is a strange thing...A natural on a horse since he was able to walk, and imbued with a pure love of riding, Declan Murphy became one of the most brilliant jockeys of his generation before his world came crashing down at the final hurdle of a race at Haydock Park. His skull shattered in twelve places, he was believed to be dead, the last rites were read and the Racing Post published his obituary. Miraculously, and the word is not used lightly, he survived and defied medical thinking in recovering to the extent that eighteen months after his fall, he was able to saddle up for one more race. As usual, he won.For 23 years, Declan has been unable to tell his story, to bring to words existence on the frontier between life and death, to describe the incredible bond between man and horse. But now, in an extraordinary collaboration with Ami Rao, she has helped him find those words, a way to piece together what happened before, during and after, what it all meant and what it means to us all. It is a story of triumph, fear, love and loss, by turns primal, heartbreaking and inspirational, and ultimately, it is the story of hope, and of life.
The downloadable audiobook edition of The Horse Boy, the astonishing true story of an autistic boy whose life was transformed by a horse. Abridged and insightfully read by Rupert Isaacson himself. At the age of three, Rowan was diagnosed with autism. Alongside many difficulties, it meant that he was virtually unable to speak. One day, his father Rupert introduced him to Betsy, the neighbours old brown horse - and was astonished at what happened. This powerful mare suddenly dropped her head and stood stock still. No matter what Rowan did - shrieking, babbling, rolling on the ground - she remained still, quiet, submissive. Shall I put you up? he asked. Up! Rowan said. It was the first meaningful word he had ever spoken. So began an epic journey on horseback from their home in Texas to the wilds of Mongolia. Rupert Isaacson takes us on a magical adventure, describing how these mysterious and sensitive creatures provided the key to unlocking his sons hidden personality.
Who would have believed that a knobby-kneed little colt named Seabiscuit would become one of the most celebrated racehorses of all time? Although Seabiscuit was the grandson of the legendary Man O' War, he was neither handsome nor graceful. His head was too big, his legs were too short, and his gallop was awkward. During the depths of the Great Depression, however, Seabiscuit won against incredible odds and uplifted the hearts of people throughout the country. Originally published in 1962, this classic recounts the thrilling tale of the plucky horse who refused to quit, the down-on-his-luck jockey who refused to let accidents keep him out of the saddle, and the taciturn trainer who brought out the best in both horse and jockey. Moving and inspirational, Come on Seabiscuit! is a reminder of the qualities that make for a real American champion.
