For Horse Racing Fans

Are you a fan of the Kentucky Derby and looking for books featuring horse racing? Check out these titles available at the library:

Secretariat Reborn by Susan Klaus
Secretariat Reborn by Susan Klaus (Suspense)
Christian Roberts has the good life, renting out small sailboats on Sarasota Bay, but his peaceful life is shattered when he accepts a thoroughbred colt from his estranged, dying father, an Ocala horse trainer. "Klaus crams a lot into her debut thriller, which combines thoroughbred horse breeding, mob skullduggery, and a love-crazed stalker." (Publishers Weekly Reviews)

Dick Francis's Refusal by Felix Francis
Dick Francis's Refusal by Felix Francis (Mystery)
Retired investigator Sid Halley is lured back into the game exploring alleged race-fixing after the suspicious death of the chairman of the racing authority. "In the steeplechase world, "refusal" means that a horse will not take a jump. Dick Francis' son Felix, collaborator with his father on several novels and now the heir to his father's line of mysteries, extends the equestrian definition to the massively banged-up (physically and emotionally) Sid Halley, who stars in a Francis novel for the first time since 2006." (Booklist Reviews)

As the shadows lengthen over the June grass, all England is heading for Epsom Downs - high life and low life, society beauties and Whitechapel street girls, bookmakers and gypsies, hawkers and acrobats, punters and thieves. Whole families stream along the Surrey back-roads, towards the greatest race of the year. Hopes are high, nerves are taut, hats are tossed in the air - this is Derby Day.
