"(a) rollicking, rambunctious memoir"

What shines through is Mackenzie's love of horses, racing and racing people. And he hasn't done too badly either as an owner: he's had 71 winners. Journalists' memoirs are rarely War And Peace, but this is a tremendous story of a life enjoyed, a race well run, often hilarious, always engaging. Well, several races in fact, with hopefully a nice touch at the bookie's afterwards. Do enjoy.
