From his first win in 1997 to when he retired in July 2020, he rode almost 2,000 winners, making him the fourth most accomplished rider of all time.True Colours reflects on a life steeped in horse racing, brilliantly capturing the irreplaceable buzz, the adrenaline, and the toll the highs and lows took on Barry’s personal life and family life as he tried to balance living at a steady pace in a world notorious for its high-risk status.

Barry Geraghty, an Irish horseracing legend. From his first win in 1997 to when he retired in July 2020, he rode almost 2,000 winners, making him the fourth most accomplished rider of all time. With more wins at Cheltenham than any other jockey, he has worked with all the greats - Moscow Flyer, Kicking King, Monty's Pass. But Barry is covered in scars.

He has broken all his limbs, his shoulders, his ribs and 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 kept getting back on the horse. This book is about resilience; the mental power that enables the great to keep going despite the pain, despite the odds. Containing startling revelations and a searingly honest insight into the life of a top jockey, this is a must-read for all sporting fans.
