Kirkus Reviews, February 15, 2002... 
The rewarded with a thrilling end... Squires has the gift for good, toothsome storytelling... A heart-pounding finish. The Calumet Collection : A History of the Calumet Trophies by Judy Marchman Three Strides Before the Wire: The Dark and Beautiful World of Horse Racing
by Elizabeth Mitchell. She introduces readers to the mysterious, mercurial world of horse racing in a book thatís as fast-paced and colorful as a day at the track. In this meticulously researched and poignantly written narrative, Mitchell goes behind the scenes of one of the largest moneymaking industries in the country: horse racing. Focusing on the 1999 Derby winner Charismatic, she traces this horseís amazing and ultimately tragic story, from the birth of the foal through its surprising rise to fame to its tragic death. Mitchell also follows the major players in Charismaticís life, including the family who bred him, the trainer, the owners, and the famed jockey Chris Antley, whose own tragic story matches that of his horse. Through these interlocking stories, a sense of familiarity with key players in the industry evolves, as well as a greater understanding of the heart and soul of a sport that has fascinated human beings for centuries. Elizabeth Mitchell is the author of W: Revenge of the Bush Dynasty. For three years she was the executive editor of George magazine, and she is currently a contributing editor for Newsweek. She lives in New York City. Stan Hey's Guide to Racehorse Ownership Sean Smith's account of the Royal Family's Horse Racing Ownership Lightning in a Jar by W.Cot Campbell.
