About this title


It's March in Ireland - the flat season is about the start and Irish Times racing correspondent, Brian O'Connor has decided to boldly go where no racing correspondent has gone before. He puts his money where is mouth is and attempts to turn Euro 5,000 into Euro 50,000. But can he actually do it ...In Add A Zero, we join him on his quest as we're taken through the highs and the lows of the world of Irish racing, where we meet with leading personalities, trainers and jockeys such as Aidan O'Brien, Dermot Weld, Michael Kinane, John Magnier and many others. From drunken dinner parties to famous racecourses like the Curragh and Galway, the tips keep on coming - with mixed results! - in a book for racing buffs and novices alike. As the season progress so does the book, but will Brian show that there's no such thing as a poor bookie? Or will his horse romp home? A betting man might ask 'what are the odds?'
