Days later, it’s discovered that many more horses test positive for prohibited stimulants, a scandal that could throw horse-racing into disrepute. It’s no surprise when the BHA receives a demand - pay up or face the consequences. In order to limit the damage to the sport, it’s critical that Jeff find the perpetrator, but he’ll soon learn he’s up against someone who will stop at nothing to prevail.

Pen Farthing: Wylie – the brave street dog who never gave up
For a street dog born in the city of Kandahar, Afghanistan, to be crowned top dog at Scruffts, a competition for rescued crossbreads held during Crufts, the largest dog show on earth, is nothing short of a miracle. But for Wylie, the gentle, cropped eared ball of fur, miracles seemed to happen quite regularly. Beaten and abused while being used as a bait dog, Wylie suffered terrible injuries that needed urgent treatment. Rescued close to death, with hacked off ears and a severed tail, he was attended to by soldiers who feared he would not last the night. Astonishingly he did, only to return days later with new injuries. However, a lifeline came when he was handed over to animal welfare charity Nowzad and flown to Britain in the hope of finding a new life. This is the story of a dog who never gave up hope.
