Horses in training is a rarity. On the surface this book contains a mass of tables and information on racing. However its timing, just before the Cheltenham Festival and the start of the new Flat Season is crucial. Perhaps it is the fact that after a long winter, the early spring brings with it the hope of summer months of fabulous racing. Which trainers' young hopefuls will turn into the princes and princesses they all hope for? The book lists, in alphabetical format, British, Irish and French trainers, their horses, the owner and breeder of each horse, foaling dates of two year olds, and the trainer's address and phone numbers. Fully indexed, it has over 200 pages of statistics.
