Le Crapouillot: Les Courses

Paris: Societe d'Editions Parisiennes Associes, Summer 1975 (n.s. 36). First edition. Soft cover. 78p, many photos. Cover wear; internally clean, complete. In French. Good. Item #30194

This "non-conformist" magazine turns its irreverent attention to French racing (mostly flat, also some trotting): its history, betting combinations and tricks, and the scandal of the 1973 Prix Bride Abattue, which was fixed by "Monsieur X." Also a glossary of racing terms, articles on turf personalities past and present (trainers, jockeys, etc.). The title translates as mortar, as used in the World War I trenches. Bottom of photo is cropped.

Price: $15.00
