Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tim Whitney
Among the many firsts that she has achieved in her career, Julie Krone was the first woman to win a Triple Crown Race with her success in the 1993 Belmont Stakes. Starting with this inspiring achievement, Savage's biography discusses Krone's childhood and personal life but focuses primarily on her career, in which she has had to fight against prejudice and injury to continue riding. Many color photographs accompany the text. A glossary and a section of statistics and highlights of her career are also included.
