Michael Church

has a worldwide reputation as the authority on the Derby Stakes and the history of Thoroughbred breeding.

Apart from his lineage chart compilations of all the British Classic winners, he has also written 14 books, including the highly acclaimed, The Classic Pedigree, Dams of Classic Winners, Champion Sires and three definitive histories of  The Derby Stakes, leading to his appointment as Official Derby Historian.

Michael’s books have established themselves as essential reading for those seriously involved in the racing and breeding industries, as well as becoming collectors’ items with an appeal far beyond the sport.
