Horseracing is blessed with the richest of histories, but exactly what is it that makes a horserace great?
Every racing fan has their own view - and in 2005, the Racing Post decided to find out what its readers thought about the matter by asking them to vote for what they considered the greatest race of all time.
The response was overwhelming: over a period of two months, thousands of votes were collected.
These were added to the nominations of a specially convened panel of experts to compile the definitive list of the 100 greatest races of all time involving at least one horse trained in Britain or Ireland.
Now, in one lavishly illustrated book, you can read about them all - with essays by the Post's top writers and the thoughts of trainers and jockeys most closely involved with such momentous occasions.
You can also read about the top races of 2005, plus find out about the most unforgettable races from elsewhere around the globe.
