Synopses & Reviews

profiles these outstanding runners, their owners and trainers, and the eras that shaped their careers. One constant holds throughout the book: These “Women of the Year” are celebrated for their remarkable achievements, all forever linked in an elite sisterhood.

"Rare is the history book that is a page-turner; this is one of them. While some racing books get too bogged down trying to tell the tale of each and every race, this book expertly weaves racing and society history with the tales of these storied characters, both human and horse."
