📒Sport Der Koningen ✍ C.E. Morgan
📝Sport der koningen Book Synopsis : De familie Forge is een van de oudste en meest trotse families in Kentucky, even mythisch als de geschiedenis van het Zuiden. Henry Forge, erfgenaam van een van de eerste kolonisten die de reis naar het Westen aandurfden, is tomeloos ambitieus en besluit de koers van de familieboerderij te wijzigen: hij gaat paarden fokken. Hij werkt samen met zijn dochter Henrietta, hoewel dit vaak botst met haar eigen verlangens en dromen. Het conflict escaleert wanneer Allmon Shaughnessy, een zwarte man die net is vrijgekomen uit de gevangenis, aan het werk gaat in de stallen. Door zijn aanwezigheid komen de gruwelen aan het licht die zich in het verleden rond de boerderij hebben afgespeeld. Samen probeert het drietal een nieuwe toekomst te scheppen, een die niet blijft herinneren aan het bloedige verleden van de staat Kentucky.

📒The Sport Of Kings And The Kings Of Crime ✍ Steven A. Riess
📝The Sport of Kings and the Kings of Crime Book Synopsis : Thoroughbred racing was one of the first major sports in early America. Horse racing thrived because it was a high-status sport that attracted the interest of both old and new money. It grew because spectators enjoyed the pageantry, the exciting races, and, most of all, the gambling. As the sport became a national industry, the New York metropolitan area, along with the resort towns of Saratoga Springs (New York) and Long Branch (New Jersey), remained at the center of horse racing with the most outstanding race courses, the largest purses, and the finest thoroughbreds. Riess narrates the history of horse racing, detailing how and why New York became the national capital of the sport from the mid-1860s until the early twentieth century. The sport's survival depended upon the racetrack being the nexus between politicians and organized crime. The powerful alliance between urban machine politics and track owners enabled racing in New York to flourish. Gambling, the heart of racing's appeal, made the sport morally suspect. Yet democratic politicians protected the sport, helping to establish the State Racing Commission, the first state agency to regulate sport in the United States. At the same time, racetracks became a key connection between the underworld and Tammany Hall, enabling illegal poolrooms and off-course bookies to operate. Organized crime worked in close cooperation with machine politicians and local police officers to protect these illegal operations. In The Sport of Kings and the Kings of Crime, Riess fills a long-neglected gap in sports history, offering a richly detailed and fascinating chronicle of thoroughbred racing's heyday.

📒Aborigines And The Sport Of Kings ✍ John Maynard
📝Aborigines and the Sport of Kings Book Synopsis : Aborigines and the ‘Sport of Kings’ celebrates the significant and exciting Aboriginal involvement in Australian racing history. A remarkable history considering that Australian Aboriginal people’s first contact with the European animals caused them bewilderment and terror because violent massacres and unprovoked vicious attacks were conducted from horseback. However, within a short period they adapted and shed their fears. Over time they caught horses and taught themselves to ride, using sheets of bark as makeshift saddles. Settler accounts record Aboriginal people’s uncanny affinity with horses; their excellence in caring for them and in riding. So, moving from the skilled workers who were the backbone of the Australian pastoral industries to racing horses was an obvious step. Amongst the many Aboriginal jockeys highlighted in the book are Merv Maynard, Norm Rose, Frank Reys, Richard Lawrence 'Darby' McCarthy and Leigh-Anne Goodwin, Australia's first female Aboriginal jockey to ride a winner at a metropolitan track.
