Summary
What does it take to win the Kentucky Derby? The breeder of the 2001 winner reveals that beyond a fast horse, a sense of humor and boundless capacity for absurdity and humiliation are essential. When Jim Squires set up shop as a horse breeder in the bluegrass country of Kentucky, no one held out much hope for him making a living at it.

With a hefty severance payment, he decided to take up professionally his 20-year passion: raising horses. Here is Squires' rollicking tale of how a novice in the world of Kentucky horse culture did more than merely stay in business; he brought together the stallion and mare that would produce the winner of the most famous race of all.
