An American champion at heart, "The Magnificent Sham" achieved an unofficial record for the second-fastest time in the history of the Kentucky Derby. He remains second only to the legendary Secretariat. Ironically, challenging Secretariat for the 1973 Triple Crown abruptly shattered his quest for fame and almost ended his life. This compelling book unfolds that brilliant animal's spellbinding story-the story of a courageous underdog born in the wrong place in time.

Although this is an interesting look at Secretariat's main rival, Sham, the book is in desperate need of proper editing.
