FORM : My Autobiography

By Kieren Fallon

Official SIGNED Copy. FIne Hardback and Fine Wrapper. See Photos. 'The most eagerly anticipated racing autobiography for many years'. As a jockey, Kieren Fallon had a unique rapport with his horses, often coaxing them to victory when others had struggled. His skill and commitment made him a punter's favourite. His magnificent record, which saw him crowned Champion Jockey on six occasions, ensured he became one of racing's biggest stars. In Form, Kieren Fallon provides a searingly honest account of his life, and the pressures he faced to get to the top of his sport, where winning was never enough, and where relaxation came in the shape of a bottle of vodka or a meal that had to be 'flipped' immediately to ensure he maintained his weight. He worked with some of the best trainers and won all the biggest races, but true happiness only ever really came to him when he was on the back of a horse - a joy that he still feels now that he has retired from racing as he rides work early in the morning. Ideal for racing fans! This hardback book has 312 pages and measures: 24 x 16 x 3cm approx. B3
