Relive the past with British Racing Books! Two British racing books from 1973 (photo is of 1972 books, but you get the idea).
1. Racehorses for the Flat (green cover) has been published annually by Timeform since 1948, the books contain individual entries for every horse that ran on the Flat in Britain during the season. There is an extensive write up on the top horses, and there are black and white photos of the more popular horses.
2. Raceform Up To Date, Form Book Annual Flat (blue cover) is a Sporting Chronicle Publication. It’s a complete record of flat racing in Great Britain and Ireland from Nov to Nov of the year on the cover. They make good companion books.
Racehorses Of…. (green cover) is in very good condition, but no dust jackets. They come with the green hardcover, gold embossed writing as shown. They all have ‘CTBA library copy’ stamped on the end (the library donated them). Pages are a little yellowed at edges but the page paper is glossy and the print is very clear. Book measures 7-1/4″ long, 4-3/4 wide, 1-3/4 thick.
Raceform….. (blue cover) is in OK shape. Paperback cover, creases on spines, inner pages are yellowed, has a few loose pages – not bad considering this book is over 40 years old. Book measure 6.1/4″ long, 4.1/4 wide, approx 2″ thick. Starting bid $12.00 includes shipping.
