There are still so many unknowns in the breeding of thoroughbreds, but the international research coalition known as the Equine Genome Project is making many exciting discoveries - and also debunking many traditional pedigree theories. Dr Matthew Binns is a leader of the project, an enterprise set up to map the equine genome, and with Tony Morris has written this important book on the theory, practice, art and science of thoroughbred breeding. Packed with absorbing history and cutting-edge science, this is a fascinating and illuminating book.
