Chris McGrath

Previously the Independent’s award-winning racing correspondent, he is the author of Mr Darley’s Arabian (John Murray Press, 2016), 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. Shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award 2016,  McGrath expertly guides us through three centuries of scandals, adventures and fortunes won and lost: our sporting life offers a fascinating view into our history.
