Notes of a Sportswriter's Son

Spurred by his sportswriter father's recollection of Secretariat's Kentucky Derby in 1973, John Sullivan spent two years trying to understand the allure of Thoroughbred racing. Along the way, he delves into the history of the horse and man - from the prehistoric to the horse in war.

He writes with vivid detail of Kentucky, the way Thoroughbreds are bred, sold, trained, and raced, and follows a crop of two-year-olds to the classics. War Emblem's bid for the 2002 Triple Crown; Funny Cide's quest and Secretariat's conquests ... he tells the stories with new perspective and a penetrating insight.

The book is entertaining, informative, disturbing at times, but it always makes you want to turn the page.
