A biographical account of some of the racing legends who lived and worked in Cheltenham. Each chapter focuses on a different personality who has achieved considerable success in the world of horse-racing. Some of the racing heroes recorded are: Fred Archer - champion flat-race jockey for 13 successive seasons and five-times winner of the Derby; Billy Stott - five-time champion National Hunt jockey and winning jockey of both the Gold Cup and Champion Hurdle in 1933; Gerry Wilson - seven-time champion National Hunt jockey who won both the Gold Cup and the Grand National on Golden Miller in 1934, and in 1945 became the first man to have both ridden and trained a Champion Hurdle winner; Frenchie Nicholson - champion jockey and Gold Cup winner who went on to become one of the best developers of young jockeys; and Jim Wilson - arguably the best amateur jockey of his day, and the last amateur to ride a Gold Cup winner when he brought Little Owl home first past the post in 1981 - who is now a local trainer.
