From the cover: “In the world of sporting personalities Lester Piggott is one of the outstanding figures of his age. Eight times Champion Jockey since 1960, a title he has held every year from 1964 to 1970, he has also fought his way to victory in the Derby no less than five times, riding nearly all of the most famous racehorses of the day in a series of memorable partnerships of which perhaps the most spectacular was his 1970 Derby win on Nijinsky. Ivor Bailey’s biography, within the framework of an exciting picture of the contemporary racing scene, tells the compelling story of Piggott’s career, from the frustrations and triumphs of his early apprentice days to his rise to international pre-eminence in this exacting profession.”
