Ballads of the Turf Book Video

If ever there was a racing book that totally reflects the romantic era of life on the backstretches of North America's racetracks, it is Thoroughbred horse racing's Ballads of the Turf by author William Galvin. Now in its third printing, Ballads of the Turf has captured in its witty, poetic verse, delightful, rollicking ballads that rhyme with an engaging rhythm, galloping along as they tell of the real life escapades of Damon Runyonesque-type characters... those of a horse-racing brotherhood seduced by dreams of racing glory, and kept forever in its grip by the magic and appeal of the backstretch. Widely acclaimed by a Who's Who of the horse racing world, and with kudos from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, this treasury of tales from an another era of horse racing is revived in magnificent detail by the author, who lived among the unforgettable, colorful characters who populate his ballads.
