When Bobby Met Christy The Story of Bobby Beasley and a Wayward Horse. By Declan Colley 1st Edition Collins Press.
Champion jockey Bobby Beasley had won a Cheltenham Gold Cup, a Champion Hurdle and a Grand National by age 26. When he was 24, Bobby took his first drink and soon succumbed to alcoholism. His friend, Nicky Rackard, urged him to attend Alcoholics Anonymous, helping him to turn a corner. Five years later, aged 38, Beasley rode Captain Christy to an amazing victory at the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The story of Irish jockey Bobby Beasley is a most heartwarming one of an unlikely comeback.
