HORSERACING BY ARTHUR FRANK & JOE DRAPE
Award winning photographer Arthur Frank offers us 168 exhilarating photographs of Thoroughbred racing. His work spans this exciting sport in the United States, France and Ireland.
Joe Drape, New York Times sportswriter, insightfully introduces us to how these photographs capture the beauty and excitement of one of the world’s most popular sports. We find ourselves gifted with the opportunity to experience the essence of the Thoroughbred as they grow into race horses from their days as foals, through training sessions, and then to their athletic and competitive lives at the track .
This book highlights the unique relationships between the horses and those individuals who breed them, own them, train them, care for them, ride them and bet on them. Our photographer, a true fan of the sport and the horse, offers a unique humanistic depiction of the ‘sport of kings’ and concludes with a tribute to the winners and the losers, as every fan of this sport is truly a winner.
Arthur Frank is a sports photographer who has been photographing equine sports and activities for over twenty years. His previous photography book was ‘Cowboy up’. He now lives in New York City.
Joe Drape is an award-wining sportswriter for the New York Times who has also written a number of books on horse racing and football. He also lives in New York City.
