Dominating victories, great duels, and astounding rallies make up some of horse racing's greatest moments. Award-winning writer Edward L. Bowen captures these in At The Wire, a compilation of twenty-seven races plus Breeders' Cup highlights that have earned a solid place in America's turf history. Bowen tells the unforgettable tale of the 1973 Belmont Stakes, in which national hero Secretariat ended a twenty-five-year drought of Triple Crown winners with a spectacular thirty-one-length victory. At The Wire revives the enormity of the triple dead heat in the 1944 Carter Handicap. And Bowen pays homage to the running battle between Affirmed and Alydar and its 1978 Triple Crown conclusion in the Belmont Stakes. Bowen writes of outstanding horses at their best in fierce competition and of their time and place in American racing.
