Even if you have limited interest in horse racing, I think that you would find this a compelling book. The author may have made big money as the editor of a major newspaper, but his life was not nearly as precarious as when he becomes the small-time breeder of racehorses. To have a horse which he bred relatively early as a breeder end up in the Kentucky Derby was thrilling and you share in his amazement and anxiety as he follows his career while continuing his operations on his farm.
