Great Horse Racing Mysteries

Ben Franklin Award Winner

Subtitled "True Tales from the Track" and winner of the Ben Franklin Award, it is a collection of actual unsolved mysteries involving the horse racing industry. Included are the kidnapping of the famed Irish horse Shergar, the death of Australian hero Phar Lap, and the baffling disappearance of jockey Al Snider who, prior to vanishing off the Florida Keys, was the regular rider of the great Citation.

From Eclipse Press (2000). Trade Paperback (2003).

"Racing enthusiasts should love this book, but even those who can hardly tell the Kentucky Derby from a hat should find it an engaging look at a bizarre international subculture."
