Muhammad Ali had Joe Frazier. Chris Evert had Martina Navratilova. Jack Nicklaus had Arnold Palmer. And, Affirmed had Alydar. These great sport rivals will forever be intertwined in history. Rivalries are why we tune in. They’re what we discuss at the water cooler the next morning after a big game. Horse Racing’s Greatest Rivalries explores 20 of the greatest match ups, as selected by a panel of turf writers and racing historians. The story of the filly Gallorette and the 19 races she ran against her older male rival, Stymie, may not be as well known as the epic battles between Seabiscuit and War Admiral or Sunday Silence and Easy Goer, but each rivalry is just as compelling as the next. Whether you were a Silver Charm fan or a Free House fan or whether you cheered for Alysheba over Bet Twice or visa versa, this book reminds readers of why they became fans of the sport in the first place. As horse racing awaits its next great rivalry, this book brings to life the horses and their connections that make its history so exciting.
