Grey Magic is a unique book because the grey Thoroughbred is a unique phenomenon, whose origins cannot fail to inspire any connoisseur of racing and breeding. It seems that everyone loves a grey racehorse. Not only is this the first publication of its kind devoted to famous greys over the last 100 years, but it also reveals the astonishing truth that each and every one can trace their grey colour back to an Irish stallion foaled early in the nineteenth century. Remarkably, all 93 of the famous horses featured in Grey Magic derive their grey coats from Master Robert, an otherwise relatively obscure racehorse. A fascinating read for all racing fans.
