by Steve Davidowitz Who are the best horses, jockeys, trainers and horseplayers of modern times? What were the sport's biggest mistakes, most shocking upsets and most important handicapping contributions? Author Steve Davidowitz, who has seen and known them all, answers these provocative questions and hundreds more, but that's just the beginning of the opinions and observations in The Best and Worst of Thoroughbred Racing.
Davidowitz, a veteran reporter, columnist and handicapper who has worked and gambled at dozens of American racetracks, is a passionate lover of the racing game--and an equally passionate critic of its shortcomings. In addition to starting and settling arguments about the sport's most talented people and racehorses, Davidowitz takes aim at its rascals and reprobates and at an industry that too often fails to address and resolve its issues.
The result is a provocative and pointed collection of top-10 lists and essays that touch on every aspect of the racing game: horses, jockeys, trainers, owners, breeders, gamblers, stallions, broodmares, as well as its best and worst moments and practices.
Whether you are a novice seeking to expand his knowledge of a complex sport and its history or a railbird with opinions as strong as the author's, The Best and Worst of Thoroughbred Racing is sure to educate, entertain and inspire you. Hardcover, 324 pages
