Summary
"With an insider's knowledge viewed from an outsider's perspective, Tim Rice's Broke in a Tangle skillfully narrates many of the great moments in horse racing complete with the triumph and tragedy met by the characters that accompany them. If you ever wondered what motivates humans to race horses, these stories will unravel that mystery in a most entertaining fashion. Through nearly a half century of trying to solve the riddle of Kentucky Derby winners, Rice's recounting of those highs and lows leaves no doubt of his affection for the sport and its most noteworthy participants. Weaving the racing stories into the cultural and political settings of the times - an historical horse racing tour from the Andrew Jackson era to the present - gives the reader a story line rare in racing journalism. Champion horses, Hall of Fame trainers, legendary riders, as well as a wide assortment of rogues - they are all here. Broke in a Tangle brings them all to life in a way that will appeal to professional horsemen, dedicated fans, and the curious lay person as well. For the reader seeking great stories with the noble thoroughbred as the central character, Broke in a Tangle wins going away."--from Amazon
