Seller's Description

TO WIN JUST ONCE Guy Lewis and Sean Magee
The Life of a Journeyman Jump Jockey

 

Paperback 224 pages, good condition. Black and white photographs.  Published by Headline 1997.

 

To Win Just Once explores the world of the journeyman jump jockey through the experience of Guy Lewis, who describes in his own words the ups and downs of a typical season.  It examines what motivates riders like Lewis, for in no professional sport is the relationship between risk and reward as spectacularly disproportionate as in National Hunt racing - a point illustrated in the starkest way by the death of young jockey Richard Davis in a steeplechasing fall in July 1996.  And yet there is no shortage of recruits to the winter game, riders eking out every last penny for whom winning the Cheltenham Gold Cup or Grand National is just a remote fantasy.
