Sinopsis:

Interlaced with hunor, this book looks at the pitfalls and pressures owners, trainers, and jockeys face at Derby time and why most fail, while others, notably the big three of D. Wayne Lukas, Bob Baffert, and Nick Zito, always seem to win the big prize.

About the Author:

Steve Haskin is an award-winning Turf writer renowned for his Kentucky Derby commentary. During his nearly three decades at "Daily Racing Form", Haskin made a name with his "Derby Watch" columns. He joined "The Blood-Horse" magazine in 1998, and as senior correspondent provides coverage of the Triple Crown races and the Breeders' Cup. He has won three Red Smith Awards for his Kentucky Derby coverage.

Haskin has written three other books for Eclipse Press, including "Baffert: Dirt Road to the Derby", co-authored with Derby-winning trainer Bob Baffert, and he has contributed to several other books published in the United States, England, and France.

Haskin, who also is editor of the Kentucky Derby and Breeders' Cup souvenir magazines, lives in Hamilton Square, New Jersey.
