500 Greatest Gambles and Gamblers [9781905156474]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
500 Greatest Gambles and Gamblers takes you from the woman who lost GBP 3 million in one year's gambling (don't panic, she could afford it!) to the man who won a GBP 1 million for 50p; from the day Frankie Dettori nearly bankrupted the bookies, to the bookie who quit the business because he'd won so much from one man. It takes you from the flamboyant, eccentric, fearless punter, Dorothy Paget, Queen of the Turf in the Thirties, Forties and Fifties, whose Golden Miller was the first genuinely great Cheltenham Gold Cup winner, to the flamboyant, eccentric, fearless punter Harry Findlay, whose Denman is the latest genuinely great Cheltenham Gold Cup winner. Great gambles and gamblers, leviathans of the punt, wonderful wagers - they never fail to fascinate those of us for whom a tenner each way is a significant outlay, and this book will gather together more of them than you could shake a betting slip at.
AUTHOR: Graham Sharpe has spent 30 years working in the worlds of bookmaking and racing. He is William Hill's Media Relations Director, and an award-winning journalist and PR man who has studied the history of both the Sport of Kings and gambling, and written widely on the subjects.
