Following the success of Horse Chestnut: The Story Of A Legend (coauthored with Mike de Kock) and The Ten Habits of Highly Effective Horseplayers, Pretorius latest work is a delightful journey into the annals of horseracing history. Sad and nostalgic at times, Legends Of The Turf includes ten striking chapters and a new bonus profile, documenting extensive research and personal interviews with some of the industrys biggest names. Enlightening, controversial and richly entertaining, Legends Of The Turf is the result of one mans love for horseracing and his deep admiration for its heroes, hailed or unsung. Its a collectors piece for all individuals with an interest in the Sport Of Kings, but its general theme of human trials and tribulations has cross-over appeal for any reader who enjoys good story-telling.
