Description - Them and Us by John Scally

What compels thousands of Irish people to travel to the Cheltenham races every March? And what matters more to them - that an Irish horse wins or that the Ould Enemy is beaten? These are the questions which inspired John Scally to write this behind-the-scenes look at the role played by the Irish in the world's favourite race meeting, as jockeys. punters and trainers share their insights and humour. Them and Us tells the stories of some of racing's greatest champions, among them Golden Miller, Arkle and Dawn Run, and features exclusive interviews with the likes of Ted Walsh and Peter O'Sullevan. Including a comprehensive review of the Millennium Festival, including Istabraq's dramatic and historic victory, Them and Us is packed full of reminiscences about memorable races and is essential reading for both Irish and non-Irish racing fans.
