Set in the world of flat racing, Dark Horse tells the story of two 'hit and run' accidents that took place five years apart.It's not until the second one occurs, that a journalist begins to investigate the chain of events that results in tragedy. He starts a chain of events which are unstoppable and, no matter how hard the people involved try to stop the truth coming to light, he delves into the information available until he finds out what really happened.

To young jockeys, personal reputations are everything and there are people who will stop at nothing to keep the accidents a secret. Even murder ...

This is one of John Francome's finest novels.
