Synopsis

Derby Day, 1913. Two hundred and fifty thousand people, from dustmen to duchesses, surge onto the Epsom Downs for the greatest race of the year. But among the happy crowds, there are dark schemes under way.



For months a group of wild gamblers have been training Aboyeur, their savage thoroughbred, in secret. Weighted down, and made to endure endless hours on a treadmill and in a 'hot box' during the day, but allowed to fly under the night-time darkness of Salisbury Plain, Aboyeur is set to fool the bookmakers and win millions for his masters. Central to the plan is Ingram Piper, the young man whose nerve will be tested to the limit. But when Ingram's friend, the fearless suffragette, Emily Davison, arrives at the racetrack and sets her sights on the King's horse, fates will collide in the most devastating way.



THROWN is the story of a stable lad and a suffragette, their reckless courage and doomed friendship, and the thrilling race that binds them together. In the tragedy that unfolds, fortunes are made and lost, hearts are broken and the course of history will change for ever.
