This is the story of Penny Farthing, race horse, from foalhood through to his racing career. More than a portrait of a horse, the book also shows the full gamut of racing life:  “the tout, the tipster, the stable lad, the “big” breeder and the “small”, the stud groom and his underlings, the auctioneers, the fellows who lay and take the odds – we meet them all, looking just as we know them.”
