The great stallions that shaped the modern thoroughbred are presented in a stallion register format, each with a conformation photo and a specially written 800 word essay summarising his career.

The stallions are from every major racing jurisdiction and include Alcimedes, Bimelech, Carbine, Djebel, Eight Thirty, Fair Trial, Gainsborough, Hail to Reason, In Reality, Khaled, Lyphard, Man o’ War, Northern Dancer, Oleander, Phalaris, Questionnaire, Ribot, Seattle Slew, Teddy, Ultimus, Vain and Worden just to name a small sample. The entry on Northern Dancer runs to 14 pages.

The essays alone are worth the price of the book. Bloodstock journalist extraordinaire Tony Morris wrote the essay on Northern Dancer with other contributions from Tony Arrold, Patrick Brain, Steve Brem, Robin Bruss, Jennifer Churchill, Charles Faull, Jack Glengarry, Jane Henning, John Hutchinson, Frank Mitchell, Anne Peters, Steve Roman, Brian Russell, Jack Werk, Bill Whittaker, Les Young and many more of the world’s leading authorities on thoroughbred pedigrees.

There are comprehensive Sire and Broodmare Sire lists for most major racing nations, the biggest collection ever assembled in print.

GTSOW is fully indexed, the index alone runs to 80 pages and contains 68,000 names. There is also a comprehensive five generation pedigree index for the 205 great sires represented.

GTSOW is a tour de force by authors Jennifer Churchill, Byron Rogers and Andrew Reichard, almost 1000 pages and weighing 5kgs. The initial print run of 2,500 copies was sold out in the first two years, so don’t miss this opportunity to secure one of the last few.
