Bone Crack, by Dick Francis

The hero in this one is some sort of business troubleshooter, but comes to help look after his father's racing stables following a car accident which results in the father being hospitalised. He's kidnapped by some Swiss criminal, and threatened with financial ruin unless he takes on the criminal's son as an apprentice jockey and promises to let him ride the favourite horse in the Derby. Various bones get cracked along the way.

This was a pretty good one.
