Anne Holland’s biography outlines Arkle’s career, incredible wins and the numerous people involved with this legendary racehorse.

Arkle, Ireland's most legendary racehorse, went through the season 1965/66 unbeaten in five races at the absolute height of his powers. Fifty years on from his incredible wins, including the Cheltenham Gold Cup, Irish Grand National, Hennessy Gold Cup, King George VI Chase and Punchestown Gold Cup, Anne Holland looks at Arkle's legendary success, which have never been surpassed.

Often referred to simply as 'Himself', the story goes that he received items of fan mail addressed to 'Himself, Ireland'. Anne Holland's biography outlines Arkle's career, incredible wins, people involved with him including Jim Dreaper, Paddy Woods, Tom Taffe, sculptor Emma MacDermott, the Baker family, and others, and the ongoing interest in this legendary horse.
