The world's greatest horse race comes to life in the beautiful pages of this definitive history of the Kentucky Derby.
Take a front row seat at "the Run for the Roses" with the first comprehensive history of the Kentucky Derby. The Derby is one of America's yearly iconic events that is watched by a huge cross section of the County––from the extravagant hat wearers in "Millionaire's Row" to the rowdy campers in the infield to the millions who watch from their living rooms.
This stunning, full–color book is the official reference for the Derby, complete with a comprehensive history of the race, essential facts and statistics, and the gripping stories of dreams won and lost in every Derby since 1875. Relive each exhilarating two minute battle to the finish line as the moments and people who have made the race what it is today are revealed, along with fascinating trivia that every horse lover should know, such as Triple Crown nominees, famous disqualifications, starting post positions of winners, birthplaces, bloodlines, and more.
