Sport of Queens book. Did you know he was a steeplechase jockey too?
Sport of Queens book. This is the biography of thriller-writer Dick Francis . Did you know he was a steeplechase jockey too? Dick was born in the United Kingdom in 1920 and from the beginning Horses were in his blood. This book, The Sport of Queens, is about his life journey as a jockey. I have a good friend who is a big Dick Francis fan, so I promised to read at least one of his suspense novels just to see if I might like him too.
The Sport of Queens was first published in 1957, soon after Dick Francis retired from racing. The Sport of Queens is also a treasure trove of information about the daily lives of steeplechase jockeys and the exotic world of racing. In real life, I never go near a horse if I can help it. He was at the top of his career - a Champion Jockey who rode the best horses in England and in many races wore the colors of Her Majesty the Queen Mother. But Dick Francis carries me into a fantasy world where I thrill to the speed, power and beauty of a finely bred racehorse. His tremendous skill as a storyteller is amazing, given his equally impressive skill as a jockey.
