About this title


The story (past and present) of the Derby in eleven photographic chapters with 343 color pictures and accompanying text. For buffs. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

From Library Journal:

Close-up photographs showing all aspects of the Kentucky Derby, often in full-page sequential action shots, lend a particular excitement to this book and make the reader feel right on the scene. The text begins with the foaling of possible candidates (of 40,000 eligible thoroughbreds, only 20 actually gain the chance to compete) and follows the horses through yearling auctions, training, and the minutest details of Derby day, leading with clockwork precision up to the winning moment. Concurrently, the past 100 years of Derby history is also told. Recommmended. Joanne K. Hammond, formerly with Pennsylvania State Univ. Lib., Mont Alto
