9780071414920: D. Wayne : The High-Rolling and Fast Times of America's Premier Horse Trainer

"In his first feature-length biography, Carlo DeVito has turned in a strong effort, relating the story of the enigmatic monarch of the far-flung empire known as Team Lukas, which dominated American racing of the 1980s and '90s."--Thoroughbred Times

"D. Wayne is the first biography of America's premier horse trainer. Love him or not--and few horse players are ambivalent--Lukas is racing's most successful trainer and has changed his sport. DeVito's richly detailed account is sympathetic but hardly uncritical."--Louisville Courier Journal

From the Back Cover:

Praise for D. Wayne:

"Winning isn't everything, but it's the principal goal in all sports. Wayne Lukas has accomplished it with skill, dedication, attention to detail, panache, and controversy more than any horse trainer before him. It's a fascinating story from starting gate to finish line."
--Jim McKay, ABC Sports

"A fascinating look into the history and career of America's most famous horse trainer."
--William Nack, Sports Illustrated

"D. Wayne is the complete story of the man who, quite simply, changed the game of training thoroughbred racehorses. Lukas also raised the bar for those who follow. All of that, and he still gives the best sound bite and quotes in the game!"
--Chris Lincoln, host of ESPN"s "Racehorse Digest" and global television presenter for the World Series Racing Championships

"Carlo DeVito has turned in a strong effort, relating the story of the enigmatic monarch of . . . Team Lukas."
--Thoroughbred Times

"Lukas is racing's most successful trainer and has changed his sport. DeVito's richly detailed account is sympathetic but hardly uncritical."
--Courier-Journal, Louisville, Kentucky

"[A] crisply reported biography of trainer D. Wayne Lukas."
--Lexington Herald-Leader, Kentucky

"D.Wayne brings to light how Lukas has become one of the most successful and interesting sports figures in our time. . . . An interesting read."
--Las Cruces Sun-News, New Mexico
