Dark Horses Annual 2019


Marten’s Guide to the Flat season

E-Book available now

Posted daily First Class




This year’s Dark Horses has a new look, now entitled the Dark Horses Companion and produced in a more succinct format than before. The usual features appear again but the Classic Previews, now called Classic Contenders, are produced in a more accessible note-style format.

Online subscribers will also receive free access to a webpage where entries are listed.

The Dark Horses series of books, first produced in 1976, are widely recognised and respect as the authoritative source of information about unexposed and unraced talent.

Price: £10.99 (out April)


The Dark Horses Companion contains:

The Premier List – Marten’s select analysis of horses to follow
The Dark Horses – unexposed or unraced horses that have been brought to Marten’s attention
The Dark Handicappers – unexposed horses that may have been let in lightly
The Classic Contenders – Marten’s succinct appraisal of the candidates, some less obvious than others, for the first four Classics
