Review Text

  • By Steve Grant on 4 July 2013

    This book is way overdue, but has been worth the wait. Most Lewes residents are unaware there was once a racecourse in the town yet, in its heyday, the course was as important as Newmarket and regularly played host to Royalty and very famous horses, including Shaun Spadah and, of course, the great Eclipse. This books tells the untold stories of the horses, the people and Lewes itself, all of whom illuminated its history from the past to the present. It is beautifully written and, as attested by Lord Rathcreedan in the Foreword, beautifully researched. A gem of a book, neither too long nor too short, but rich in anecdotes and invaluable to racing enthusiasts, historians and anyone interested in the eclectic town of Lewes itself. Well done, Cheryl R Lutring.

    I echo Steve Grant's review. The author is to be highly commended on a well-researched history of Lewes Racecourse and its local trainers, and for keeping that history alive so that it is not lost. Two friends with Lewes racing connections were delighted to learn about this book. I understand that it has already merited a re-print. My copy may have been an original, and my only reservations were about the rather faint print and lack of clarity in the photographs. If these were put right, this would merit a 5-star rating, but I have to acknowledge that the price of the book is a bargain. Looking at this book again, I think my original rating was a little ungenerous, and it certainly deserves four stars.
