Reviews - What do customers think about Champions: The Lives, Times, and Past Performances of America's Greatest Thoroughbreds, Revised Edition?

For The VERY Serious Horse Racing Fan  May 10, 2008
I was disappointed to discover that in this 448 page book, approximately 290 pages are devoted to thousands of lines of statistical data. It was not what I expected. The history of the sport is arranged in a time line format with a story on each decade from the 1890s to 2004, each chapter followed by 30 or more pages of statistics. I am not a horse racing fan but I did find this book enlightening. What I learned is that horse racing is really all about the breeding and the money. I found this very sad, especially in light of the recent tragic deaths of Barbaro and Eight Belles.
 
great book  Apr 3, 2008
what a beautiful and informat book that will have you turning pages for days-well worth the money...
 
to hold on at your library  Feb 7, 2008
in this book you will find the pp's of the most famous horses ever in USA.

it's a really great book...i reccomend strongly for horse racing fans
 
America's Horse Athletes  Aug 29, 2007
I bought this book for my husband as a present as we both enjoy horses and horse racing. He couldn't put it down. The book offers easy to read history that would fascinate anyone with or without an interest in horse racing. The reader becomes excited reading about such races as Secretariat and Affirmed. It renews or introduces interest in horses such as Whirlaway and Nashua. This is a readable book with the past performances (which are hard to read for the non-horse race handicapper) that can be used as a reference book, too. The book is nicely organized with chapters representing the great horses of the decades and brings the reader up to the present (2004). If you like sports and admire athletes - here's a book filled with the greatest of them all!
 
Great gift for the racing fan  Apr 13, 2007
Bought this as a gift for my Dad. Huge horse racing fan. I guess this is a must have item. I personally have no idea. But he raved and raved about getting it. If you are shopping for a gift also get them the horse racing almanac.
