The Most Glorious Crown: The Story of America's Triple Crown Thoroughbreds, from Sir Barton to Secretariat
This book is a true biography of each Triple Crown champion from Sir Barton up to Secretariat - explaining what preceded and what followed each race and how each horse fared at stud and in retirement. But it is a picture story as well; it includes the most complete collection of photographs of the Triple Crown champions ever assembled in a single book. It also includes a history of the Thoroughbred and Thoroughbred racing in England and the United States, a glossary of racing terms, a wealth of statistical and technical information and a complete index.
