Overview

D. Wayne: The High-Rolling and Fast Times of America's Premier Horse Trainer by Carlo DeVito

"In his first feature-length biography, Carlo DeVito has turned in a strong effort, relating the story of the enigmatic monarch of the far-flung empire known as Team Lukas, which dominated American racing of the 1980s and '90s."—Thoroughbred Times

"D. Wayne is the first biography of America's premier horse trainer. Love him or not—and few horse players are ambivalent—Lukas is racing's most successful trainer and has changed his sport. DeVito's richly detailed account is sympathetic but hardly uncritical."—Louisville Courier Journal

The telling of D. Wayne Lukas' life story is an interesting read, but the book could've used a good editor. There are numerous typos and mistakes of fact. I'm kind of surprised that a book could make it to print without being thoroughly proofed and if this one was, they need to get a new proofreader!
