Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
One of the most remarkable books about the horse industry that has ever been published. Discover for yourself the engaging drama that gave birth to the kingdom for the horse. You will learn about the genesis of the American horse pedigree system - the genius of one mans devotion to quality control and exceptional care in pure bred animals - the terrifying raids during the Civil War on Woodburn by some of the countrys most notorious outlaws and the vigorous chase by union forces to recover stolen horses - a romantic visit to one corner of the virgin Bluegrass where a noble Scotsman developed the pedigree system that created many of the first horse reacing giants in America - a striking documentation of lingering influences of the Alexander family and their rich heritage including two modern day governors and other important contemporary breeders. It will etch into your memory the unforgettable events that make the beginnings of great American horse racing as refreshing as a good day at the track.
