Now in paperback, John Henry continues to entertain horse racing and sports fans with its true rags to riches tale. A plain brown, small, bad-tempered animal, John Henry was the horse no one wanted until he was purchased sight unseen for $25,000 by Sam Rubin, a man who knew nothing about horses, except which end bit and which end kicked. Entrusted to California-based trainer Ron McAnally, John Henry blossomed into a star. Named Horse of the Year in 1981 as a six years old - an age when most racehorses are enjoying retirement - John Henry continued to race at the top level of the sport through the age of nine, when he was voted Horse of the Year for the second time. He retired as all-time leading money earner in 1984 with more than $6 million and today lives a life of luxury at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

"This book is a nearly perfect pairing of author and subject. Bill Christine is among the very few writers who fully understand the emotional history of horse racing in America over the last half century. Bill Hartack was a living example of the chasm between the sport’s towering highs and punishing lows. Christine takes us inside Hartack’s improbable rise from poverty to his five Kentucky Derby victories to the struggles of his final years. It’s a ride as wild as any horse race and a book that belongs alongside the best ever written about the Sport of Kings."--Tim Layden, senior writer, Sports Illustrated “This is a brilliant writer writing about a complex guy. It makes for a very enjoyable read.”--Composer Burt Bacharach, an Eclipse Award winner as a horse owner and a winner of multiple Grammy, Tony and Academy Awards “A great collection of interesting facts about one of the greatest Kentucky Derby jockeys of all time. I’ve been in the game over forty years and there are a lot of stories about Hartack that even I didn’t know.”--Jerry Bailey, Racing Hall of Fame jockey and horse racing analyst for NBC-TV. Bill Hartack won the Kentucky Derby five times, and seemed to hate every moment. "If only Bill could have gotten along with people the way he got along with horses," a trainer said. His impoverished upbringing didn't help: his mother was killed in an automobile accident; the family home burned down; his father was murdered by a girlfriend; and he was estranged from his sisters for most of his life. Larry King, his friend, said it was just as well Hartack never married, because it wouldn't have lasted. Hartack was one of racing's most accomplished jockeys. But he was an inveterate grouch and gave the press a hard time. At 26, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Whenever the media tried to bury him, he would win another Derby. At the end of his life, he was found alone in a cabin in the Texas hinterlands. Drawn from dozens of interviews and conversations with family members, friends and enemies, this book provides a full account of Hartack's turbulent life.
