Overview:Arkle: The Legend of 'Himself' - In 1964, Arkle's first-place finish in the Cheltenham Gold Cup was the first big win by Ireland's most celebrated racehorse: the horse by which all others are measured. Fifty years on from the start of his incredible career - which included wins in the Cheltenham Gold Cup (three times), Irish Grand National, Hennessy Gold Cup, King George VI Chase and Punchestown Gold Cup - Anne Holland looks at Arkle's life and legend through the eyes of those who knew him best.She describes Arkle's career, his incredible wins, and the people involved with him, interviewing many of his connections, including Jim Dreaper, Paddy Woods, Tom Taaffe, sculptor Emma McDermott, the Baker family and others. Arkle was a star - the story goes that he received items of fan mail addressed to 'Himself, Ireland' - and this is a well-researched and intimate portrait of a legendary horse.
