D. Wayne: The High-Rolling and Fast Times of America’s Premier Horse Trainer by Carlo DeVito
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
If you love horse racing and have for some time, this is a MUST READ book. It’s an older book, released in 2002, but it was a wonderful stroll down memory lane for me. The names of the trainers, the names of the horses, the races … all good to remember. But the author took me behind the scenes, filled in a lot of backstory, and plenty of controversies I’d heard only a little about. Things written for the racing world that didn’t make prime time. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Horse racing fans will too.
