Silks, Soaks and Certainties - Bob ButchersBlenheim Press, 2008, Paperback.
Condition: Very Good+.
First in this edition. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover; “This light-hearted look at the racing scene will appeal to all who are racing ‘buffs’ and many who are not. The tale of a family whose links with racing have spanned more than a century is packed with many wonderfully evocative accounts of incidents and characters of yesteryear. Some of the activities would, to say the least, be frowned on today. Bob was the original Newsboy on the Daily Mirror and filled that post with distinction for almost 39 years. This, coupled with his family background, gave him a deep knowledge of what went on behind the scenes in racing and have provided him with a fund of stories which he shares with us in this book.”
