A Memoir of Love, Loss and Liberation by Patrick Smithwick
“If his previous books Racing My Father and Flying Change were high-risk affairs, his new book Racing Time – a play on words, like many of the words in its pages – is akin to moving from the perilous post-and-rail fences of the Maryland Hunt Cup to the steep hedges, ditches and brooks of the Aintree Grand National. Making it safely to the end, horse and rider, writer and reader are exhausted and exhilarated.” — Dr. Andrew Lemon
Dr. Lemon is the author of the three-volume History of Australian Thoroughbred Racing. In 2012 he was a John H. Daniels Research Fellow at the National Sporting Library and Museum, Middleburg, Virginia.
