The Copper Horse:  The Story of a Steeplechasing Horse From His Point of View
Hutchinson & Co, London, 1948, illus Lionel Edwards, 192 pp.


“...the autobiography of Copper Knight, a horse whose racing career started with failure, went on to success, and finally
ended in failure. The story is told partly by Copper Knight himself, whose feelings towards his owners, trainers, riders and
stable companions are very frankly expressed; they are indeed "straight from the horse's mouth." Copper Knight has
very strong likes and dislikes where human beings are concerned and will only give of his best on the race course to
those who treat him properly. The story of Copper Knight is told with sympathetic  understanding and great knowledge~
of horses and racing. “
