Seller's Description

 

HELL FOR LEATHER A Champion's Diary - RICHARD DUNWOODY

 

with Marcus Armytage.

 

Hardback with dust cover 166 pages, full colour photographs. Excellent condition.  Published by Partridge Press 1993.

 

Hell for Leather follows National Hunt jockey Richard Dunwoody through the latter part of his first championship winning season.  It gives a jockey's eye view of the important meetings, goes behind the scenes of racing's moments, both big and small, and tells of the split-second decisions that are the difference between winning and losing, landing on your feet or on your head.

 

With Marcus Armytage, he guies us through the 1993 Cheltenham Festival, Aintree and the party atmosphere of the Punchestown Festival in Ireland.  There was to be no Gold Cup for Dunwoody in 19993, nor another Grand National to add to his roll of honour. The 1993 National was sensationally declared void after a disastrous false start that saw the starting tape wrapped around Dunwoody's neck.

 

This book is not all about glory. It is about early wet mornings, being black and blue with bruises and spending long hours at the wheel and in the sauna.  It chronicles all sides of a champion jockey's life and provides a unique insight into a gruelling, yet magnificent season.
