The Great Stallion Book

  • $180.00

The Great Stallion Book by Richard Ulbrich, published Australia 1986, large thick, original blue cloth hardcover folio, gilt titles, 463 pages, index to racehorses, full page gloss black and white photos of Reigh Count, Bosworth, Sayajirao, Galopin, Mr. Jinks, Trigo, Sir Cosmo, Star Kingdom, the aim of this book is to provide the most comprehensive guide that can be contained within a single volume to the significant stallions of Thoroughbred history. The primary test for inclusion is the appearance of particular stallions in today’s pedigrees, although a few superior racehorses which were not stud successes have been included because of their racing ability. The biographies cover the period from earliest well-documented time to the foaling year 1950. This is because the proliferation of stallions since then would have extended the work into many volumes, and because it is a fact of thoroughbred breeding that most stallions from the present and recent past will disappear from future pedigrees. Book now out of print, much sought after, some minor ware to dust wrapper which is now under protective plastic,  good clean tight copy, $250. (SR)
