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
Helpful Score: 2

This is a great story of how an unlikely group of friends ended up owning a classic horse. It speaks of the heartbreak and the exhilaration of the sport of thoroughbred rachin. This is a must read for any horse racing enthiusiast! The only thing I wish is that the book delved a little more into what happened after the Triple Crown Series was over. I knnow that Funnycide races for a few more years but it doesn't go into details as far as why he didn't win any more major races or if his Triple Crown season was a fluke. But overall, this is a great book and I highly recommend it.
