Set amid the drama of the turf, this acclaimed six-part series is based on the highly successful series of novels by bestselling writer (and 1956 Grand National veteran) Dick Francis. Starring Mike Gwilym and featuring appearances by Iain Cuthbertson, Susan Penhaligon and Gerald Flood, The Racing Game includes scripts from British drama stalwarts Trevor Preston, Leon Griffiths and Terence Feely.

Sid Halley is a former champion jockey whose career ended when a racetrack fall left him with a shattered hand. Marital breakdown has compounded his gloom, but Sid is jolted out of self-pity when his father-in-law urges him to investigate a string of mysterious 'accidents' at a major racecourse – one of which has killed Sid's friend.

Drawing on his inside knowledge, Sid opens a private detective agency with reformed thug and judo expert Chico Barnes to dig deeper into a cut-throat world of blackmail, bet-fixing, falsified records and even murder. Every breeder's dream is to produce the winner of a classic race, but the duo uncover plots that threaten to turn the Sport of Kings into an auction for crooked punters...
