THE BLACK HORSE INSIDE COOLMORE
THE BOOK COOLMORE STUD IS STILL TRYING TO ILLEGALLY SUPPRESS FIVE YEARS AFTER IT WAS PUBLISHED
John Magnier is the billionaire owner of Coolmore Stud in Ireland and friend of England's Queen Elizabeth. He is lauded around the world for his brilliant race horses and stallions. This is the story of life inside Coolmore with those horses and its people. Full of joy but heartbreakingly sad.
It is 40 years since Magnier, Vincent O'Brien and Robert
Sangster, with the help of a little horse from Canada, set about revolutionising the bloodstock world. We follow the journey as millions of dollars were risked on untried yearlings in the hope they would become champion racehorses and then champion stallions; turning water into wine and and an Irish farmer into a fabulously wealthy tycoon.
The author takes you behind the scenes to capture the magic of life being created and cared for inside Magnier's principal foaling barn, where he worked for seven years, as brilliant racehorses like Gleneagles, Ruler Of The World, Adelaide, Homecoming Queen, Tapestry, Highland Reel, Minding, Found and Churchill drew their first breath.
The blood, sweat and tears of the people who work with the horses combine with thirty pages of stunning photographs to
leave never-to-be-forgotten images of life inside the world famous Coolmore Stud in County Tipperary.

"I thoroughly recommend it."
"The world famous stud, the ex-worker's explosive book and his claims that suicides were covered up by gardai. "
IRISH DAILY MAIL
"Trying to suppress a book is a dangerous game, for it begs the question: Why? There is too much detail and too much concern for former work colleagues for the author's claims to be ignored."
DAVID WALSH - SUNDAY TIMES
"No wonder John Magnier is going to such
lengths to get Jones' self-published book
off the shelves." THE PHOENIX
"State's 'reined in' freedom
of speech, says stud author."
