Racing albums make the perfect present

For racehorse owners there can be no better collection of memories and records than beautifully-bound leather albums – and they make the most marvellous presents.

Dan Abbott, founder and creator of, put his vast experience of racing to work to create the most established racing album business in the UK.

“Our albums make superb gifts for owners,” says Dan, who attended his first race at Cheltenham at the age of 11 – and backed a winner with his two-shilling (10p) stake.

He was also, during his early career, assistant to the famous Daily Express racing journalist Clive Graham and advertising agent for Ascot Racecourse during the Eighties and Nineties.

Dan and his wife, Sue, are involved in racehorse ownership and have run a number of successful syndicates.

“We have one of the best calligraphers in the country, Gerald Fleuss, doing all the entries by hand to make beautiful books which can be updated annually,” says Dan.

Superb leather-bound racing record albums start at £165.
The owner’s own racing colours are hand-painted to order by a heraldic artist together with gold-embossed names.

“We can personalise every album,” says Dan, “and can talk to clients about requirements to give them the best-value albums available anywhere in the world today.”

Dan, who also owns, and, established his business in 1981 and has many satisfied clients who come back time and time again.

Among these is football manager Sir Alex Ferguson, in his racehorse-owning role, and the Lloyd-Webbers. Lady Lloyd-Webber is a highly-regarded racehorse owner and breeder who owns the Watership Down Stud.

“Our owner’s racing record has proved a major winner for all sections of the racing industry for more than 30 years,” says Dan. “A record of a racehorse’s performances recall the days of triumph and disaster – which makes our sport so exciting and interesting.

“We provide all the research and calligraphy, which is highly acclaimed by our clients.”

Album leather covers come in a variety of colours including bottle green, burgundy, chocolate brown, dark sapphire and ebony. Other colours are also available.

The exclusive service is brought to you from the man trusted by the racing industry for his experience and insight. Dan Abbott is based in Henfield, West Sussex, and brings his tremendous enthusiasm for racing to all his customers.

Another service offered is the creation of Illuminated scrolls for home or office which can be hand-crafted to an owner’s requirements to present a handsome racing record for any wall.
