The Dark Horses is written and aims to be your companion for the 2020 Flat season and as a point of reference for the future.
Produced in a more succinct format than before. Our usual features appear again but the Classic Previews, now called Classic Contenders, are produced in a more accessible note-style format.
You may prefer the Dark Horses Annual (Enhanced) which includes a hard copy of the book as well as access to a webpage where entries are listed throughout the whole season.
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.
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
For an additional fee you can choose to order this book in an enhanced format.
The enhanced format will give you a hard copy of the book as well as access to a secret web page that lists entries for horses featured in the book for the whole Flat season.
The page is updated twice a week.
