Dirt Road to the Derby

Baffert by Bob Baffert
Add to cart
US$ 9.99
Winning the Kentucky Derby in 1997, 1998, and 2002 has made Bob Baffert the most visible trainer in America. His wit and silver-haired good looks have made him the most popular. In this candid and often hilarious autobiography, Baffert recounts growing up in a tiny Arizona border town, where he peddled eggs after school and started riding his family's Quarter Horses. His early exploits as a jockey provide a fascinating glimpse of racing at the "bush tracks" of the Southwest, complete with shoot-outs and rigged races. Baffert's real adventures begin when he strikes up a friendship with Mike Pegram, who bankrolled his entry into Thoroughbred racing. After losing the 1996 Kentucky Derby by only a nose, Baffert vowed to return. Return he does, winning the 1997 Kentucky Derby with modestly bred Silver Charm and the 1998 Kentucky Derby with Real Quiet, who cost just $17,000.
