MAY THE HORSE BE WITH YOU: PACK AT THE TRACK


In May the Horse Be With You: Pack at the Track, Harvey Pack reflects on over a half century of racing’s most memorable people, places, and moments. From his seat in the grandstand as a childhood fan, to his decades of dedicated work behind the microphone and in front of the camera, Pack recalls a lively life at the track amidst millionaires, busted-out bettors, and ever- changing crew of wagering compatriots. Pack, with the help of author Peter Thomas Fornatale, tells Runyon-esque tales from his seven decades as a racing fan, highlighted by the characters he was fortunate (and unfortunate) enough to meet. In the end it wasn’t the celebrities or racing superstars that Pack connected with best, but the regular racetrack “Joe.” Whether one finds himself lumped with the hundreds of fans who risk the rent money or just a casual $2 across-the-board bettor, it’s the everlasting comradeship associated with being a horseplayer that Pack and so many others are drawn to day in and day out. This humorous tale is sure to be a classic! Hardcover, 159 pages
