Franklyn Davey Horse Racing and the Turf Hunting 1925 Hunting 1925 25 - Fox hunting remains a controversial subject but has been banned in the UK since 2004, however back in the 1920s when this set was issued it was not only popular, but the graphic pictures such as “Digging out a Fox”, “the Kill”, “Taking the Brush” and “Blooding a Youngster” would not have raised an eyebrow. The brown and white photographs, which include nice shots of horses and hounds, are backed with detailed texts telling you all you could possibly want to know about a pastime that has largely vanished from rural life. The cards are size 67 x 36mm.

Daily Herald Horse Racing and the Turf Turf Personalities 1955 Turf Personalities 1955 32 - Few remember the Daily Herald newspaper now, but this was published between 1912 and 1964 when it ceased and was relaunched as the Sun. This set was issued with the paper and consists of numbered black and white pictures of jockeys and trainers, but sadly these are blank on the reverse. Among the jockeys is flat racing champion Gordon Richards, Charlie Smirke winner of eleven classic races, Doug Smith, T. Lowrey, Joseph Caldwell, William Nevett who was the leading jockey in the north, Ken Gethin and William Johnstone whilst the trainers include, N. Cannon of Druids Lodge, F. Templeman of Lambourn, V. Smythe of Epsom, Capt. C.F. Elsey of Malton, M. Marsh of Newmarket and H.G. Blagrave of Marlborough. Some of the cards are cut larger than others, but the average size is 62 x 37mm

Mitchell Horse Racing and the Turf Old Sporting Prints 1930 Old Sporting Prints 1930 25 - This set takes us back to the 18th and 19th centuries with a series of contemporary paintings and lithographs illustrating sports of the period – and some fascinating facts like when the third stump was added in cricket. We see bloody spots such as cockfighting and bare-knuckle boxing, horse-racing including the Grand National and the Derby, hunting, shooting and fishing. Surprising inclusions are two cards of mail coaches – the Edinburgh Express and the Brighton Day Mail which are hardly sporting topics. Packed with interest, this is a set to savour.
