LEGENDS OF THE TURF (Volume 1) is award-winning South African journalist Charl Pretorius' first book since 2006, a compilation of updated personality profiles and articles from his popular column of the same title that ran for over seven years in the Johannesburg daily, The Citizen. Following the success of Horse Chestnut: The Story Of A Legend (coauthored with Mike de Kock) and The Ten Habits of Highly Effective Horseplayers, Pretorius' latest work is a delightful journey into the annals of horseracing history. Sad and nostalgic at times, Legends Of The Turf includes ten striking chapters and a new bonus profile, documenting extensive research and personal interviews with some of the industry's biggest names. Enlightening, controversial and richly entertaining, Legends Of The Turf is the result of one man's love for horseracing and his deep admiration for its heroes, hailed or unsung. It's a collector's piece for all individuals with an interest in the Sport Of Kings, but its general theme of human trials and tribulations has cross-over appeal for any reader who enjoys good story-telling.

He was always destined to be a champion. Royally bred, with English and American classic winners in his pedigree, Sir Barton shone from birth, dubbed the "king of them all." But after a winless two-year-old season and a near-fatal illness, uncertainty clouded the start of Sir Barton's three-year-old season. Then his surprise victory in America's signature race, the Kentucky Derby, started him on the road to history, where he would go on to dominate the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes, completing America's first Triple Crown. His wins inspired the ultimate chase for greatness in American horse racing and established an elite group that would grow to include legends like Citation, Secretariat, and American Pharoah. After a series of dynamic wins in 1920, popular opinion tapped Sir Barton as the best challenger for the wonder horse Man o' War, and demanded a match race to settle once and for all which horse was the greatest. That duel would cement the reputation of one horse for all time and diminish the reputation of the other for the next century -- until now. Sir Barton and the Making of the Triple Crown is the first book to focus on Sir Barton, his career, and his historic impact on horse racing. Author Jennifer S. Kelly uses extensive research and historical sources to examine this champion's life and achievements. Kelly charts how Sir Barton broke track records, scored victories over other champions, and sparked the yearly pursuit of Triple Crown glory. This book reveals the legacy of Sir Barton and his seminal contributions to Thoroughbred racing one hundred years after his pioneering achievement.

Many of the Irish legends, superstitions, and ancient charms now collected were obtained chiefly from oral communications made by the peasantry themselves, either in Irish or in the Irish-English which preserves so much of the expressive idiom of the antique tongue. These narrations were taken down by competent persons skilled in both languages, and as far as possible in the very words of the narrator; so that much of the primitive simplicity of the style has been retained, while the legends have a peculiar and special value as coming direct from the national heart.
