“Not just a Horse,” she said. “The horse …. the greatest racing stallion in American turf history.”

Three generations are inspired by a racehorse in pre-civil war Kentucky: The slave who loved him, the artist inspired by him and the scientist who reconstructed the magnificent animal’s skeleton for the Smithsonian. There are parallels between how the horse and humans were treated in this moving true life story.
