About the Author

Jamie Douglas-Home was a racehorse trainer, author and journalist. Born in Edinburgh, he inherited his love of racing, the countryside and writing from his father, playwright and politician William Douglas-Home, brother of the prime minister Sir Alec Douglas-Home. He was educated in England at Eton and Bristol University, where he studied History and Archaeology.
After a successful career as a racehorse trainer in the 1970s and 80s, he moved on to racing journalism, where he became one of the UK's most-respected racing correspondents, contributing regularly to magazines such as Racing Post and Country Life magazine. He established a reputation as a witty writer and was a popular writer for The Field and The Oldie magazine and also authored several books.
