This was a fun read. I enjoyed learning mroe about such mysteries as the Holy Bull Derby disaster, as well as Alydar and Phar Lap's strange deaths. I also learned about horse racing mysteries that I was not aware of, such as the disappearnece of Shergar. This is an excellent read for anyone who is tired of reading fictional mysteries.
What more could a fan of mysteries and horses want then a book that delivers both in exquisite details. I recommend this to anyone who loves a good book to curl up with and just plain enjoy.
Enjoyable change of pace reading. Great for both horse lovers and those just looking for interesting reading.
Many stories from racing are mysterious and this collection just touches the surface. Fun reading.
