“In crisp, elegant prose, Drape captures his subjects and their sport as they wind through a wildly eventful season of racing.” —Laura Hillenbrand, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Seabiscuit
 
Rich in detail and crackling with wit, The Race for the Triple Crown is a personal narrative that captures the affecting stories of the Thoroughbred racing world. From ostentatious owners, to radiant unrivaled horses, to young trainers trying to make a name for themselves, everyone has a gripping story, and all are in search of the sport’s Holy Grail. How they get to and through the enormously famous races is a tale of action, high-stakes finance, and impossible odds. Told in the compelling voice of the award-winning New York Times sportswriter Joe Drape, The Race for the Triple Crown is a vivid portrait of a year in the life of the oldest, most majestic sport in the world.

“A first-rate and absorbing account by one who knows his material—a wonderful book that leads the field from starting gate to finish line. A delight for both aficionado and novice.” —George Plimpton
 
“[Drape] opens up a magical, mysterious world—and he does it with equal parts humor, affection and wisdom.” —Bill Minutaglio, The Dallas Morning News
