9780140235838: A Biography of Lester Piggott

This is an in-depth biography of one of the most brilliant and enigmatic British sportsmen of our time. He has been top of the pole for 40 years, and a national hero, yet has also been to prison on serious tax-evasion charges and is a notoriously difficult man. A star on the racetrack, in real life he is clinically sick, a miser and a kleptomaniac. This book explores Piggott's formative years, his determination to break the feudal system within racing, the slow estrangement from friends and family and finally the recent troubled times.
