-William Nack, seven-time Eclipse Award recipient and author of Secretariat: The Making of a Champion

"Randy Romero has long been acknowledged as an outstanding jockey, but Bill Heller's well-researched, very interesting biography puts Randy's life and career in the proper context. Considering what life has dealt him, Randy's accomplishments are even more impressive. It's a story of grit, talent, and bravery. A remarkable ride indeed."
-Mike Kane, former communications officer, National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame

"Bill Heller has done a wonderful job of portraying the very interesting and intriguing life of Randy Romero."
-Shug McGaughey, Hall of Fame trainer
