One of the most popular of the stories, Silver Blaze focuses on the disappearance of the eponymous race horse named, a famous winner, on the eve of an important race and on the apparent murder of its trainer, John Straker. The tale is distinguished by its atmospheric Dartmoor setting, and late Victorian sporting milieu. It also features some of Conan Doyle’s most effective plotting, hinging on the famed “curious incident of the dog in the night-time.”
