Lou Sahadi draws on interviews with Steve Cauthen, the family of owner Louis Wolfson, and many more to tell the story of this courageous horse, whose unrivaled combination of speed and heart twice earned him Horse of the Year honors and placed him twelfth on the Blood-Horse list of Top 100 Horses of the 20th Century. In the tradition of successful horseracing titles such as Seabiscuit, Man o War, The Horse God Built, and Wild Ride, Affirmed recreates an unforgettable era in American racing history"--Publisher.
