    Wild Horses is one of my favourite Dick Francis novels I had not read it in a long time, and was a bit afraid that I wouldn t enjoy it as much now as I did as a teen, but I was pleasantly surprised This novel deals with the world of horse racing as all or nearly all Dick Francis s novels do but also with film making The narrator, Thomas Lyon, is an ex amateur jockey turned
