あらすじ・解説

The Greatest Gambling Story Ever Told is an inspiring personal narrative about a filly who broke through the male-dominated world of horse racing and inspired crowds of men and women alike, along with a trio of gamblers who embark on an unforgettable adventure that's as epic as the history victory of Winning Colors. It's Seabiscuit meets Narcos and the best true-life gambling story ever told.

In the late 1980s, a spectacular three-year-old female racehorse named Winning Colors was being groomed for success under her famous Hollywood trainer D. Wayne Lukas and the billionaire owner of the San Diego Chargers pro-football team Eugene Klein.

Meanwhile, three fun-loving gamblers Miami Paul, Dino Mateo, and Big Bernie believed that Winning Colors could be the unlikely female winner of the 1988 Kentucky Derby. When the gamblers unknowingly place their long shot bet with members of a suspected drug cartel at a racetrack in Tijuana, Mexico, they must figure out how to claim their prize - without getting killed in the process.

In a heart-pounding race of their own across the US-Mexico border, the trio come face-to-face with suspected killers, are arrested by the Border Patrol, and fumble their way through the riskiest bet of their lives.

Wow! Every horse racing fan needs to read this.

If they make a movie of this it will be the Alydar of stories to "Let It Ride" being as Affirmed. If you understand you're getting ready to read. If you don't, read anyway and don't forget to watch the Richard Dreyfuss movie "Let It Ride" later when you are begging for more. Reader is great too.

A Great Racing Story

As a horse racing fan since age 4 and a former thoroughbred owner I really enjoyed the book. I have attended several Kentucky Derby’s and the experience is amazing. If you’ve never gone to the track try it once it is one of life’s great experiences.

Just as the title describes it, what an epic tale!

Great story about the nostalgic time not too long ago when the Sport of King's still was just that. Action and detail that will keep any horseracing fan cheering on the cast of characters even if your not into gambling.

Such a Unique Book

Read this book and immediately did some online horse betting! The narrator was great - I would love to know what happened to all those involved.
