Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The only book to capture the thrill and glamour of racing in an era romanticized by millions of fans, Horse Racing showcases life at the track as it centered around Triple Crown races from the 1930s-1960s. This exciting and elegant volume celebrates the Sport of Kings at a time when champions like Count Fleet, Whirlaway, and Man o' War thundered through the pack and lucky fans could rub elbows with Bing Crosby or Liz Taylor at the Turf Club. Nearly 150 rare duotone photographs, culled from the collection of renowned racing and high-society photographer Bert Morgan, follow the action from the bustle of the betting window to the finish at the inside rail. Publishing just in time for the peak of racing season, and with an evocative introduction by author and racing fan Bill Barich, Horse Racing is a stylish, must-have look at the best of life at the races.
