The Shane Broderick Story

(1999)
A non fiction book by

 
Shane Broderick was a natural, a jockey who drew the very best from horses. A hero of the Irish racetrack, he was heading for the top, winning fame with the much-loved Doran's Pride.

Then disaster struck. On the day of the Irish Grand National in March 1997, a simple fall in an ordinary race changed Shane's life forever. he would never ride again-he was completely paralysed from the neck down.

Based on extensive research and personal interviews, The Shane Broderick Story charts the course of Shane's career, from "donkey derby" winner to stable-boy to star jockey of Irish racing, and beyond-from racetrack to rehab and the beginnings of a new life. It also reveals the ways in which the close-knit racing community reached out to help one of its own when tragedy transformed his world.

The Shane Broderick Story is a rare insight into the world of racing, investigating the triumphs of career success and human courage in the face of adversity.
