Summary
"From Seabiscuit to Secretariat, Americans have a fascination with and a passion for race horses. Kentucky Derby Dreams is the first book of its kind to capture that excitement before history is made. From the carefully calculated birth of the new crop of foals to the horses' debut at the world's premier yearling sale in Lexington, Kentucky, this is a rare behind-the-scenes look at the vets, the drugs, the surgeries, the long hours, and the hard work that it takes to breed a Derby winner. By following three years in the lives of foals born during one week of the 2009 foaling season, Kentucky Derby Dreams uncovers all the inside drama and heartache that accompany these potential champions from the foaling barn to the bluegrass"--Provided by publisher
