Join the Scudamores as one of the most successful families in British sport settles down for a good, long chat about triumph and disaster at the races. Listen in as three generations of high-flying jump jockeys engage in a full and frank discussion about the great horses they rode, the brave men and women they rode against, the shocking injuries they suffered and why such a dangerous job was the only one they ever wanted.

Strikingly different in character and in riding style, the Scudamore jockeys are alike in their ability to spin a good yarn and to shed light on the game that has so gripped them. Packed with insights that will help any young jockey or deepen the understanding of any spectator, this is the story of how three lives were shaped by horse racing and how the sport changed, matured and developed during the time of their involvement.
