Book Description The Blood-Horse, Lexington, KY, 1960. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. "The stories of the families which have had the most lasting influence upon the American Turf have been neglected, for the most part, by American Turf writers. Ginats of the Turf presents for the first time, a concise summary of the roles played by four of these families - the Alexanders (Woodburn Farm), the Belmonts (Nursery Stud), James R. Keene (Castleton Farm), and W. C. and H. P. Whitney (the Whitney Stud). The men who molded the Turf world also were active in other fields, and the stories of the Alexanders' activities in agriculture, the Belmons' in banking and transportation, James R. Keene in Wall Street, and the Whitneys in politics and business are as much a part of the heritage of the American Turf as the stories of Lexington, Fair Play, Domino, and Broomstick." Illustrated. 224 pages with index. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; tear to bottom front edge. Seller Inventory # 007295
