Welcome to the new digital home of Eddie Malloy. Eddie is the key character in the multi-book series that bears his name. The early books were co-written by Joe McNally and Richard Pitman. When Richard retired in 2013, Joe carried on with the series and intends to do so for a long time to come. The Eddie Malloy books are planted firmly in the underbelly of horseracing, a sport first explored in fiction many years ago and made famous by Dick Francis, whose son, Felix carries on the great work.

But McNallys' books are more entertaining, lighter and of course are written in the current era. I heartily recommend these books and look forward to new releases.Great stuff!
WILD HORSES - The Eddie Malloy Series
Richard rode 470 winners in the last 8 years of a 15 year career as a steeplechase jockey having been totally obscure for the first 7 seasons. He broke most bones in his body and has continued to do so from falls since retiring in 1976 (including losing an eye). Richard was involved in the most dramatic finish to the Grand National since the 1956 race when Devon Loch sprawled on the run-in a hundred yards from the winning post. In 1973, Richard, riding the giant black Australian … Read More about Richard Pitman
