Review: Ruby Walsh – The Autobiography

Overall rating: 9/10


Ruby Walsh announced his retirement after riding the winner of the Punchestown Gold Cup in 2019, so we’re sure that we’ll get an updated version of this book soon. This book is from 2012, and despite Ruby having some massive moments in his career since – it’s still very much worth reading.

You can tell how much he loves racing and this is a must-read for any racing fan. While on TV Ruby may come across as arrogant, this book shines a light on who he really is as a person. He comes across very well, down to earth and passionate about what he does in life. You can tell he got an excellent upbringing from his father, Ted Walsh.

We give this book an overall rating of 9/10. It’s one of the best racing books out there. Ruby Walsh will be remembered as Irelands greatest jockey and the chance to get a proper look and understanding into his daily life should not be missed. Once you start reading this book you won’t be able to put it down.

We also recommended it for anyone who just loves sport and wants to get an insight into the life of one of the sportsmen who reached the top of his game.

Ruby Walsh was one of the best-known jockeys in the Uk and Ireland, so many people are bound to have heard his name mentioned before, especially in the build-up to Cheltenham! You don’t have to enjoy racing enjoy this book; although it helps.
