Containing startling revaluations and a searingly honest insight into the life of a top jockey, this touching memoir is a must-listen for all sporting fans.

Barry Geraghty is an Irish horseracing legend. From his first win in 1997 he has gone on to ride almost 2000 winners, making him the fourth most accomplished rider of all time. With more wins at Cheltenham than any other jockey riding today, he has worked with all the greats – Moscow Flyer, Kicking King, Monty’s Pass. But while they have retired, he has kept on going....

But Barry is covered in scars. He has broken all of his limbs, his shoulders, his ribs, his nose. He has survived falls too numerous to recall and spent most of 2019 with a metal cast on his leg. And yet, he keeps getting back on the horse.

This audiobook is about resilience, the mental power that enables the great to keep going despite the pain, despite the odds. It explores how Barry has developed the mind tools to continue to push himself, even when all seems lost.
