"This is the story of a racehorse trainer Marcus marsh ... his owners, the Maharajah of Rajpipla, the Aga Khan and Prince Aly ... his jockeys, Steve Donoghue, Charlie Smirke and Gordon Richards ... his most famous horses, Windsor Lad and Tulyar.
It tells of his life with Aly in the casinos and the night-clubs of the Riviera ... of Rita Hayworth and Gene Tierney, entangled in Aly's web ... of Rajpipla in his Wooster world of chorus girls and confusion ... of Fred Darling, mentor, friend, yet bitter rival ... of that frail old demi-god, the late Aga, ruling the roost from the Villa Yakimour."
