Bred To Win - HB
NoteThis is a USED book.
Capturing the high-spirited infighting of the international thoroughbred business, Bred to Win is the story of an astonishing woman, Annie Grebauer, and the two passions of her life: ......one, Sam Cumberland, the scion of one of America's racing families; the other, the magnificent thoroughbreds she and Sam breed and race in competition with each other.
Raised in backwoods Kentucky with her two brothers by a widowed father amid poverty and brutality, Annie flees to New York at the age of 15. She meets the smooth yet devious Phil Angelo and his mentor Charlie Dell at the Belmont race track, and her education as horsewoman begins, first as a "hot walker," then as a groom, only to be interrupted when Annie is swept into a world of excess, illegitimacy, and double standards.
