After his retirement from the saddle in 1957, he published an autobiography, "The Sport of Queens," before going on to write more than forty acclaimed books, including the "New York Times" bestsellers "Even Money" and "Silks."A three-time Edgar Award winner, he also received the prestigious Crime Writers' Association's Cartier Diamond Dagger, was named Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, and was awarded a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List in 2000.
