The Kinanes - stalwarts of Irish racing Regarded by many as the perfect jockey, Mick Kinane rounded off his thirty-four-year career on a dazzling high with champion horse Sea The Stars, winning the 2,000 Guineas, Epsom Derby, the Eclipse Stakes, International Stakes, Irish Champion Stakes and Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in 2009. However, Mick is just one member of several generations of Kinanes who have consistently excelled in professional horse racing: through grit, talent and a legendary work ethic. The backbone of Irish racing over the past fifty years, this is the story of a clan that includes National Hunt jockey Tommy, who won the Champion Hurdle on Monksfield and who once won a race despite a broken neck, and his sons Thomas, Jayo, Paul and of course Mick. The family has its roots in simpler and indeed harder times; this book tracks their rise to the pinnacle of their sport on the world stage. Illustrated with family and racing photographs.
