  • A ripping yarn expertly told: part Flashman at the Races; part Seabiscuit without the schmaltz

  • Clee combines the story of Eclipse's racing and breeding career with the lives of those who bred and owned him, a crowd who were racy in every conceivable sense

    Daily Telegraph
  • Clee knows how to tell a gripping story: he weaves the halves together into a well-written narrative of social change... fascinating

  • This splendid book... This is a read bursting with life, and Clee has the balance and worldliness to weigh all his material with sense and perspective. No racing home should be without it

    The Times
  • It brings to life a horse that has left behind a matchless legacy. For the casual reader, it is an enjoyable romp through a period knee-deep in fops, fools and fraudsters
