It is suggested that if Anne was wanting info on arabs (for book or R.L.) then Chris was a very logical choice of person to go to.

The equine dedicatees were all members of Chris' stud and their plaques are still around.

Fiona says that they were also mentioned in Dick in "Photo Finish" as Chris was also a photographer. Problem: there is no such book. The one to do with photography is called "Reflex". I'll have to re-read it. The only other logical choice is "Flying Finish" which is about equine transport.
Err - how did we get onto Dick Francis here? It's interesting to me, as I have all his books, but I just wondered if a post has gone missing somewhere . . . ?
