A few weeks ago I had the good news that my book Turning For Home was a semi-finalist for the Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award, honoring literary works featuring horse racing. Well, now I have the very good news that my book is a finalist for the Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award, which can only mean one thing: we get to knock Keeneland … Continue reading We’re Going to Kentucky!
