Hot Cherry : The Best of Marcus Armytage Hardback
Horseracing is a serious business, generating GBP 10 billion in annual betting turnover and employing 100,000 people.
It can make millionaires and bankrupt others in the flash of a photo-finish.
However, in the twelve years since joining the Daily Telegraph, Grand National winning jockey Marcus Armytage - with an eye and an ear for the ridiculous - has been lightening up the Sport of Kings in a once weekly column and, latterly, on a fortnightly basis in Horse&Hound.
Hot Cherry brings the best of these hilarious racing anecdotes together under one roof for the first time.
Complementing Armytage's articles and bringing racing's colourful characters to life is the renowned Tipperary-based artist and racehorse owner Peter Curling.
