Synopsis

Richard Hughes, first-time British Champion Flat Jockey in 2012, is not only one of horseracing's most successful and talented riders but also one of sport's most unlikely success stories. In this sensational autobiography, Hughes gives a frank and honest account of a top rider's battle with his own mind and body. Too tall and heavy to be a jockey but too talented a horseman to be anything else, Hughes talks in detail about his life as a top jockey, his descent into prolonged and deep alcoholism, and his constant battle to keep his weight down. Shocking but also uplifting, A Weight off my Mind is the engrossing story of a man who has overcome extreme personal trauma to become a racing superstar. For fans of racing and readers new to the sport, it offers a turbulent ride. Fully updated to include his 2012 season and his record-equalling wins of seven races from the eight-race card at Windsor racecourse. Long-listed for the William Hill Sports Book Award 2012.
