He delves into the individuality of horses and how doing your homework before a race is crucial. His stories about his relationships with various trainers and owners are very interesting, especially if you know the names. The same holds true for racetracks, as each is different, and how each country has a different set of rules and track surfaces.
Stevens may not be school-educated, but he is one smart cookie......and an honest one. There are plenty of stories in here where tells us about mistakes he made in judging some horses, along with mistakes he made in human relationships. I particularly liked his touching tribute to the late Chris Antley.
Once again, as in most horse racing books, my high opinion of jockeys is reinforced. No athletes -and Stevens is a prime example - are tougher and undergo hardships and pain like they do.

Sa description des courses en Angleterre, comparée à celles au USA, est hilarante !
Le livre aurait pu être mieux construit, plus concis... avec un résumé de sa carrière... son passage en France est oublié...
A lire et à prendre comme il est...
