This book looks at the career of Desert Orchid, arguably the greatest horse in steeplechasing since Red Rum. The book examines the last seven years of his career, up to and including his 27th and most celebrated success in the 1989 Cheltenham Gold Cup. Besides that Gold Cup triumph, Desert Orchid has won the King George VI Chase twice, the Gainsborough Chase and the Whitbread Gold Cup. The book looks at these victories while outlining Desert Orchid's story, and is illustrated with 40 colour photographs. The author's previous books include "A Champion's Story" and "Monksfield". He is the racing correspondent of the "Sunday Express".
