School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up Patent traces Thoroughbred history from uncertain ancestors of extinct types through the three known foundation stallions to today's celebrity sires and scientific breeding programs. The explanation of a typical race details the physical effects on the horse's heart rate and forelegs as well as the rider's strategy. The abundance of new information will add depth to readers' knowledge and increase admiration for a glorious animal. Numerous full and half-page black-and-white photos, whose captions add facts about outstanding horses and jockeys, enhance the clear print and white space. The list of Triple Crown winners, glossary, bibliography and index add reference value. Easier to read than Wilding and Del Balso's Triple Crown Winners (Parent's Magazine Pr, 1975; o.p.), Thoroughbred Horses is an excellent companion for the author's own Arabian Horses (Holiday, 1982).
