The Copper Horse: The Story of a Steeplechasing Horse From His Point of View
Hutchinson & Co, London, 1948, illus Lionel Edwards, 192 pp.
“… the autobiography of Copper Knight, a horse whose racing career started with failure, went on to success, and finally ended in failure. The story is told partly by Copper Knight himself, whose feelings towards his owners, trainers, riders and stable companions are very frankly expressed; they are indeed ‘straight from the horse’s mouth.’ Copper Knight has very strong likes and dislikes where human beings are concerned and will only give of his best on the race course to those who treat him properly. The story of Copper Knight is told with sympathetic understanding and great knowledge ~ of horses and racing.”
