Description

Decade of champions the greatest years in the history of thoroughbred racing, 1970-1980 There’s really not much you can say about a book like this; if it’s something you want, you most likely already know about it. Artist Richard Stone Reeves, one of the kings of equine artwork, and turf writer Patrick Robinson team up for a look at a few dozen of the finest thoroughbreds of the seventies. American readers will recognize many of them (probably more than they would have thirty years ago; horses like Mill Reef and Shirley Heights have only gained fame in America once they went to the stallion barn), but by no means all, which makes this worth checking out for budding turf historians. Let’s face it, though, the reason you buy a book like this is for the paintings of Richard Stone Reeves, and they do not disappoint.
