AbstractHistoryArchive Description

English racing tragedy. A promising jockey is brain damaged in a race soon after winning the Cambridgeshire. He returns to sanity sufficiently to win the race for the next two years - having spent the last 6 months in a lunatic asylum, he dies after winning the race for the third and last time. Uncanny; slight. (PB)
