One of racing's best loved families opens up about life in the sport. Michael Scudamore, the patriarch of a racing dynasty, rode in 16 consecutive Grand Nationals including the 1957 renewal, which he famously won on Oxo. Peter Scudamore was a record-breaking eight-time Champion Jockey and now assists his partner Lucinda Russell, with whom they trained 2017 Grand National winner, One For Arthur. Tales from the saddle in the 1950s and 1960s from Michael make remarkable reading especially interspersed with those from the 1980s and 1990s from Peter. Tom Scudamore, one of the current leading jockeys, brings experience of riding today and together with stories from his father and grandfather, and the help of renowned journalist Chris Cook, a fascinating new light is shed on the National Hunt game.
