Book Review of Funny Cide : How a Horse, a Trainer, a Jockey, and a Bunch of High School Buddies Took On the Sheiks and Blue Bloods--and Won

reviewed on + 42 more book reviews

Lovely, fast read that I wish continued into Funny Cide's 4 year old career. The book tells the backstory of how a race horse affects the lives of everyone around him, and the inside scoop of what occurs to prepare a race horse.

I remember watching Funny Cide run and all his owners coming into the winner's circle at the Kentucky Derby. I loved how the backstory of this horse is brought to life. Wish there were more books like this one about other horses.
