Overview for Horse Racing in India: A Royal Legacy

Few things are as exhilarating and can be compared to the finishing dash of a horse race.

Charting the hitherto untold story of Indian horse racing, Horse Racing in India: A Royal Legacy is a monumental effort to illustrate the glorious history of Indian racing. It recalls, with its exquisitely detailed content and breathtaking photographs, the lustre and old charm of the sport as it used to be, and testifies the passion that is still held for horse racing in India.

The reader is taken on a fascinating journey through two centuries that reveals the majesty and raw competition of horse racing. Horse Racing in India offers a singular, panoramic view of the sport’s existence. It serves to inform and inspire the reader, evoking a sense of patriotism, and remedies the issue of the want of comprehensive information about Indian racing.

The book is written in chronological order and details and celebrates, among other things, horse breeding in India, races of historical importance and significance, and illustrious jockeys and trainers. It also includes intriguing information about famed owners and equally famous horses, and vision statements by the chairmen of the major turf clubs in the country.

Most prominently, it brings to light the pertinence of the ‘sport of kings’ to both the past and future of Indian society.
