    Postcards from the World of Horse Racing: Days Out on the Global Racing Road is the new book by international-racing expert Nicholas Godfrey. In a series of evocative, informative pieces from around the racing world, Godfrey visits 20 different countries on six continents, from unforgettable high-profile events at major racecourses – such as the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs or the Dubai World Cup at billion-dollar Meydan – to racing venues on the road less travelled – like Morocco, Uruguay and Switzerland, where they race on a frozen lake in St Moritz. Among those he encounters are America’s mighty mare Zenyatta, Triple Crown hero American Pharoah and Black Caviar, the ‘Wonder from Down Under’.

    As well as reliving his experiences, Godfrey prefaces each postcard with a how-to guide for those wishing to follow in his footsteps. Illustrated with a range of colour photographs, the book also features a foreword by Brough Scott, one of the most respected sportswriters in the business.
