The book explores 150 years of racing in Somerset with a series of anecdotes, stories and photographs; and is a tribute to those that founded the racecourse and helped save it, through various crises, for future generations. 

Paul Nicholls undertakes the introduction – reflecting on how Wincanton has played such a vast role in his racing life and recalls some of his happiest memories from the Somerset track - from winning as a jockey in 1982 on Tudor Road, to his near ‘Frankie Dettori’ moment in 2006 by going through the card. In the end, he had to settle for six out of seven winners and was the first trainer to do so in Britain.
