This entertaining behind-the-scenes study takes the dedicated horse-player to California's tracks to meet Jack Kaenel, who booted Aloma's Ruler to victory in the Preakness, and Chuck Jenda, who trained Brown Bess to an Eclipse Award. These and many other professionals are by your side as races are analyzed, bets placed, and questions answered about everything from claiming races, turf versus dirt, drugs, fixed races, and more. This informed look at the sport of kings offers information unavailable from any other source.
