Overview

Gary Stevens is always looking for the perfect ride. In this exhilarating, candid autobiography, he recounts the extreme highs and devastating lows of a stellar career that has spanned two decades, taken him around the world on the backs of some of the 20th century's greatest horses, and led to a role in the upcoming motion picture Seabiscuit.

From the adrenaline-pumped moments in the starter's gate at the Kentucky Derby to the fiercely competitive, sometimes hostile environment inside the jockeys' room, Stevens lays bare the thrills and perils of his ambitious ascent—and the doubts, fears, and failures he confronted both on and off the track as his all-consuming passion nearly became his undoing. More than a racetrack reminiscence, A Perfect Ride is the remarkable story of a man who has triumphed over a lifetime of adversity. Searing in its honesty, vivid in its recollections, here is the inside track on a life lived at full tilt, as told by a farm boy who rode his way to the top.

    A Wonderful Tale

    This book shares the wonderful story of Gary Stevens life. He is a amazing athlete that never quits. He should serve as an inspiration for all. This book is well written and a must read for any sports fan.

    Spectacular

    As Gary's literary agent, I'll admit to being far from unbiased. Having just started following the sport of horseracing, I found the book to be a great introduction to the sport--the owners, the trainers, the history, and the relationship between horses and jockeys. Gary is a great story-teller and his passion for the sport and his spiritual relationship with horses made for an incredible read. It's the kind of book that you can read in one sitting. I know first-hand that Gary put his heart and soul into the book, and it shows.
