"It was 4:30 in the morning, and things were so dark and still, it seemed the whole world must be asleep, when I eased up to the gate at my first horse racing track. This was my first real trip to the backside, completely alive and at it's peak when most of us are in dreamland." (From the artist's statement in the book.)From the Inside Flap:
"There is an inherent nature in horses that draws people to them. Perhaps it is their beauty or their spirit. Or maybe that even in domestication, in their souls, they remain wild and free. All of these attributes are most certainly true of the Thoroughbred race horse. And here, in "Hotbloods", award-winning photographer Jon Kral has captured the essence of the Thoroughbred racehorse and the bond with their caretakers in stunning black and white photography. Enjoy." Jo Ann Guidry, Florida Thoroughbred Breeders' and Owners' Association.
