Taking My Time tells both the tall tale of life as a jockey and the story of a second life emerging from the aftermath of a horror accident. George Baker scaled the highest of highs as a jockey. St Leger victory aboard Harbour Law cemented his place among the sport's elite despite having the body of man surely destined for another occupation. Tortuous battles with the scales were ultimately won, popularity among peers and punters was assured, life was good and getting better. Until it wasn't. A fall on the ice at St Moritz forced him to restart, to live again. He was the same person but different. New battles had to be won, trauma both physical and mental had to be dealt with. Expressed with both humour and raw emotion, this is an engrossing read for all to enjoy.
