"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

Praise for D. Wayne:

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