The Dick Francis Complete Treasury of Great Racing Stories

(2003)
An anthology of stories edited by

 
From his extensive experience as a Steeplechase rider, he and John Welcome--a fellow best-selling writer--have gathered 28 of the most classic horse racing stories around. The authors range from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Beryl Markham to John Taintor Foote and Francis himself. Damon Runyon's "Pick the Winner" introduces us to the unforgettable, ironically named Hot Horse Herbie and his ever-loving fiancée, Miss Cutie Singleton. In her "Pullinstown", Molly Keane brilliantly evokes racing among the Anglo-Irish gentry. Horse loving readers will definitely judge this a winner.
