Excerpt from Racing Reminiscences and Experiences of the Turf, Vol. 1 of 2 The reader has doubtless observed, as I have, how much interest is often aroused by a glance at an old 'Racing Calendar' which revives memories of bygone celebrities and of the events which made them famous. We seem to hear again the thunder of their hoofs as they dash past the Rowley Mile Stand, see the flash of the bright jackets, and listen to the roar of the crowd that follows the hoisting of the number which proclaims that the good thing has come off - or, as more frequently happens, has just been beaten on the post. But in a 'Calendar' there is necessarily an absence of detail; it is in its nature a dry record of fact; and I have ventured to think, therefore, that a somewhat fuller account of the most interesting events of which I have been a spectator - in which, not seldom, I have been an actor - would perhaps possess interest for my readers. During my racing career I have also gathered - and on many occasions paid dearly for - experience of various kinds; and this, it has struck me, is likely to be of service to those who have a taste for the 'great game.'
