Previously the Independent’s award winning racing correspondent, he is the author of Mr Darley’s Arabian, a book on the line of thoroughbred stallions that are all descended from one horse, the Darley Arabian, acquired by a Yorkshire family scion from Bedouin tribesmen in Aleppo in 1704. It is social history through the prism of the men and women and horses, high and low, whose passion was the racecourse and the stud.
