Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Interlaced with hunor, this book looks at the pitfalls and pressures owners, trainers, and jockeys face at Derby time and why most fail, while others, notably the big three of D. Wayne Lukas, Bob Baffert, and Nick Zito, always seem to win the big prize.

Synopsis:

"Horse Racing's Holy Grail" takes readers behind the scenes of the Kentucky Derby, examining what it takes to win one of America's greatest sporting events. 25 full-color photos.
