This surprise bestseller chronicles the stranger-than-fiction story of an unpromising horse, its owners, its trainer, and its two jockeys. The book also examines American horseracing, warts and all. It is utterly captivating. Richard M. Davison's voice is pleasant and well modulated. His pace and cadence always derive from the events being chronicled--descriptive sections are read matter-of-factly, and exciting racing with an edge-of-your-seat verve. Davison is particularly adept at keeping the listener's attention when the book, which is not written in a linear fashion, digresses into flashbacks. R.E.K.
