Throughout the exquisitely presented volume are essays on notable winners, while one of the book’s sweet extras are the pen portraits of the humans connected to many of the horses.

“Michael Church is to be congratulated. This is a classic account of Epsom's other classic. For it is the Oaks, more than any other race, which identifies the special filly who may earn the right to challenge the colts and sometimes put them in their place.” Tony Morris
