Free Love was the name given to the yearling filly bought at Newmarket’s Tattersalls sales in October 2017 by five lifelong racing enthusiasts.
A Year of Free Love tells the thrilling tale of racehorse ownership on a budget. There are more lows than highs in this rollercoaster ride, but at the heart of Tony Linnett’s very personal account there is always optimism and humour.
The author chronicles an eventful 12-month period from the sales to the racecourse, capturing the agony and the ecstasy that all lovers of horseracing will recognise.
Above all else, A Year of Free Love is a rattling good yarn that will have readers willing a small, cheaply bought bay filly to succeed against the odds.
