FUNNY CIDE How a Horse, a Trainer, a Jockey, and a Bunch of High-School Buddies Took on the Sheiks and Bluebloods--and Won

by | Read by Dan Cashman

Contemporary Culture • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Even casual horse-racing fans know that Funny Cide's bid for the Triple Crown was overshadowed by Smarty Jones, who now claims the title of "the people's horse." Funny Cide is no longer unique, but his story is still interesting. Dan Cashman lets listeners share the excitement of the horse's owners as they witnessed Funny Cide's unexpected Kentucky Derby victory. He's especially touching with the emotional story of jockey Jose Santos, who returned to the spotlight after a rocky career, and his young son. FUNNY CIDE gives horse-racing fans a fascinating look at the track and the passions shared by owners, trainers, and jockeys. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
