BROKEN The Suspicious Death of Alydar and the End of Horse Racing's Golden Age

by | Read by Stephan Watson

Contemporary Culture • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Stephan Watson presents the harrowing true-crime story that marred horse racing's Golden Age. In 1990, Alydar, a great racing stallion, was found in his stall with a broken hind leg. Author Kray, an animal lawyer, believes this injury was not accidental. Alydar's owners were in deep financial trouble, and he was insured for $46.1 million. After the horse recovered, he stumbled in his stall, broke his front leg, and had to be euthanized. Watson portrays the people Kray interviewed with authentic-sounding Texas speech. In a steady voice and an empathetic tone, he also describes the process of putting Alydar down. This description may be upsetting to some listeners. Nonetheless, the case is mesmerizing. Despite the compelling facts, no one has ever been convicted. E.E.S. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
