Dr. Watson's introduction to this Holmes case among the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, entitled The Adventure of Silver Blaze (Strand magazine, December 1892) is succinct and impossible to improve upon:

There was but one problem before the public which could challenge his powers of analysis, and that was the singular disappearance of the favourite for the Wessex Cup, and the tragic murder of its trainer.

As the story unfolds, we are taken along for a ride that is constantly on the move across moors, woods, through stables, and a landscape of characters and voices that is rich and evocative of an age of sports rivalries we can fondly recall long after they have passed from the scene.
