Best-selling author Felix Francis, the son of the late National Hunt jockey and celebrated crime writer Dick Francis, will host a one-off tour the 'No Reserve Guided Tour with Felix Francis' in Newmarket on Oct. 5, the first session of the three-day Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 1.
The tour marks the launch of Francis's latest thriller, No Reserve, which is set in the Suffolk town. Francis will take visitors to several places described in the book, including the historic Newmarket Gallops, and the Tattersalls sales ring at Park Paddocks. On the eve of the tour, Oct. 4, Francis will discuss his new page-turner, and will also sign new copies of the book. Tickets for the tour, which begins at 10 a.m. on Oct. 5, are £90 per person and include brunch and a signed complimentary copy of No Reserve. The Oct. 4 book signing event begins at 7:30 p.m. at the National Horse Racing Museum. Tickets for the latter event are £15 per person and include a glass of wine.
