Incredibly gorgeous coffee-table type book about the breeding farms of Kentucky's bluegrass country. I used to have a first edition of this and miss it. There are also some great photos of famous retired racehorses alive at the time, such as Seattle Slew and Personal Ensign. My favorite photo is of racing rivals Alysheba and Bet Twice in adjacent paddocks. Unfortunately, it does glamorize a cruel sport but as a book it is gorgeous.
