Neither from a family steeped in racing nor, even, taken occasionally to the track for a mildly diverting Saturday as a child, Norton Howells found horseracing and its unenviable charms relatively late.On an insignificant August afternoon, whilst enjoying a perk of the teaching profession, the summer holiday, his eyes happened to drift towards the racing pages of The Times. Once the information was digested, a far from spectacularly successful bet followed, though successful it was, and Norton had his epiphany:Horseracing is not about horseracing. Its an academic study using evidence and argument.Upon this revelation the course of his existence changed, he sensed an opportunity to be free, to be a better class of person. This was a game he could win. Addicted to Horseracing charts one mans quest to master that game, to solve the unsolvable. From system to system, natural instinct to pure statistics, all avenues are explored in the battle to come out in front.Presented in real-time, this story draws you in and carries you along. The writing is precise yet evocative, with nothing held back, as we discover the impact of this addiction, for better or worse, on his life, livelihood and loved ones.
