Triumph of Henry Cecil: The Authorised Biography


In 2006 many in the racing industry had written trainer Henry Cecil off. Personally, and professionally, Cecil was at his lowest ebb. But that was about to change. Henry Cecil staged the greatest comeback ever seen in horseracing, much of it despite suffering serious ill-health, which culminated in the success of Frankel, Timeform’s highest rated horse of all-time. Now, for the first time, writer Tony Rushmer tells this incredible story. Tony had joined the Cecil stables in 2006 and so witnessed this story of personal and professional redemption from the inside. With the full support of the Cecil family, Tony speaks to all those involved and in doing so brings vividly to life the triumph of Henry Cecil.
