Question?

Is there a significant difference between the 87 and 91 editions of the George Curtis book?

Is the 91 printing a revision or simply a reprint?

 

TIA,

Best,

Gregg

Thank you RA,

 

I’ve already received the first edition of the book and I’m enjoying it immensely.

Just started reading it, but beyond his obvious limitless wealth of knowledge, Mr Curtis personified humility and class. Something I feel is lost to some of our modern day trainers.

 

Appreciate it,

Gregg

 

Moral Madness

"At the same time," added the humbled king [Nebuchadnezzar], "my reason returned unto me." This whole passage is apt to be overlooked, occurring as it does in one of the less popular books of the Bible, but is it not of great significance that humility and reason returned together?

CAN ANYONE FIND ANYTHING EG CAREER STATISTICS ?

OR ANY INFIRMATION ON THE ABOVE DOG!

Hawkeye,George Curtis ,wrote a very good autobiography,in which Ballyregan Bob is obviously prominently featured,cant think of the name of it , but it should be available on the web.Ballyregan Bob , is the great grandsire of my youngest lurcher going back to Lucky and his sire Joe,some of the coursing lads may have heard of them,the bookis well worth reading sorry I cant remember the title ,regards Inan

|You are correct,Garys Joe is from that line and of course Lucky is out of Joe.

This dog made me a small fortune at the bookies back then - best Grew I ever saw.

Does anyone remember Scurlogue Champ - always looked out of it but came strong at the finish.
