Mark Johnston The Authorised Biography

In the traditional and often secretive world of racehorse training, Mark Johnston has always been different: forthright, cmobative, provocative and candid - a man who delights in challenging convention.

Over the course of more than three decades, the man from a thoroughly working-class Scottish background who trained as a vet before entering the industry has become, in terms of winners, the most successful trainer in the history of British horseracing.

In Mark Johnston: Phenomenon, best-selling author Nick Townsend provides a unique insight in the world of Johnston and his supremely successful "winning machine".  With unparalleled acces to Mark and those cloest to him, Phenomenon offers a compelling portrait of one of horse racing's most singular figures, digging into his remarkable career and highlighting his passionate and sometimes controversial views on the sport.

As Johnston contemplates passing on his stables in North Yorkshire to elder son Charlie, this fully authorised biography grants a revealing behind-the-scenes look at the Sport of Kings through one of its most fascinating figures.
