John Oaksey has seen it all in racing, as a jockey, commentator and newspaper reporter. After a lifetime devoted to the sport he recalls the splendid characters, horses and races that have made horseracing the great passion of his life, a passion that he is so brilliantly able to convey to others. One of the most respected and loved people in the sport, partly due to his work with the Injured Jockeys' Fund, John Oaksey has a fund of fascinating and hilarious stories to tell. This book is not just a wonderful self-portrait, it is also a definitive account of racing since the war.But I had a slower and much less violent a€“ if even more idiotic a€“ driving disaster earlier that very same year, this time (which made it even more traumatic) in my mothera#39;s faithful and muchloved Hillman Minx, which I had borrowed. For an eighteenmonth spell in the 1940s, during her time as a controller in the ATS, she had to drive herself weekly, quite often twice weekly, back and forth across Salisbury Plain, often in the blackout. Not at all surprisingly, she loved that little car.
