OUT OF THE CLOUDS
The Unlikely Horseman and the Unwanted Colt Who Conquered the Sport of Kings
In the bestselling tradition of the The Eighty-Dollar Champion, this is the propulsive, inspiring Cinderella story of Stymie, an unwanted Thoroughbred, and Hirsch Jacobs, the once dirt-poor trainer who bought the colt on the cheap and molded him into the most popular horse of his time and the richest racehorse the world had ever seen.
Taking readers on a crowd-pleasing ride with Stymie and Jacobs, Out of the Clouds unwinds a real-life Horatio Alger tale of a dauntless team and its working-class fans who lived vicariously through the stouthearted little colt they embraced as their own.
Veteran journalists Linda Carroll and David Rosner have collaborated on two acclaimed nonfiction books-The Concussion Crisis: Anatomy of a Silent Epidemic and, most recently, Duel for the Crown.
