From the Back Cover:

"A delight for racing fans."
Publishers Weekly

Jockey Donald Thomas Brumfield, a native Kentuckian, experienced Derby magic firsthand aboard Kauai King. After riding the horse to finish first in the 1966 Kentucky Derby, Brumfield proclaimed himself "the happiest hillbilly hardboot alive," a quote that would be forever remembered in Derby lore.

In "William T. Young--a Revered Kentuckian," author Jim Bolus tells of Young's good fortune, or magic, in the 1996 Derby. His horse Grindstone won the race by a nose in the last stride. The proud, ecstatic owner was so overwhelmed that he told reporters to "use your own adjectives. I'll endorse any good adjectives you come up with."

"The Bull and the Sunshine Boys," "Assault: The Little Horse with the Heart of a Giant," "Horses Have Their Own Personalities," and other essays convey the magic of the Kentucky Derby as well.

An authority on the subject, the late Jim Bolus conducted hundreds of interviews about the Derby. His passion for the grand old race and its traditions led him to author Kentucky Derby Stories, Remembering the Derby, Derby Fever, and Derby Dreams, all published by Pelican.

About the Author:

The late Jim Bolus, who attended his thirtieth Kentucky Derby in 1996, hadn't missed the race in more than twenty years. Dubbed a "Doctor of Derbyology" by one newspaper reporter, Bolus also wrote Derby Fever, Remembering the Derby, Kentucky Derby Stories, and Derby Magic, all published by Pelican.
