Storyline

Wealthy sportsman Colonel Ross asks Holmes to investigate the disappearance of his prize thoroughbred Silver Blaze, whom he wants to enter in the Wessex Cup Race. On the night in question the stable is visited by a gambler hoping to get some inside information on the race but is turned away by a loyal stable boy. After the boy is drugged by opium, the horse disappears, and the trainer is found bludgeoned on a lonely moor, suspicion falls on the gambler, but if he is guilty, where is Silver Blaze?

A Real Kick!
11 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A horse has disappeared. Not just any horse, one of the top thoroughbreds in the nation. How do you hide a horse and why would someone horsenap one that would be easily recognized by anyone in the business. The story involves a series of clues that lead to the arrest of a man who is the only convenient suspect. Holmes, who some experts thinks is a compulsive gambler (just speculation, of course), never takes anything for granted. The thing gets really far fetched at the end. That is to say that there seems to be little oversight in the racing business. Still, it is a new locale and a subject important to the people of England and the British Isles.
