From Afleet Alex to Zenyatta, "A Brush With Greatness" features 79 G1 winning racehorses from the 21st Century in North America. Written by Eclipse Award winning writer Edward L Bowen and artist Robert Clark. Read about anecdotes by owners, trainers and jockeys. Stories include all Kentucky Derby Winners since 2000 including Barbaro and American Pharoah. The timing of this book couldn't be more perfect. 2015 has witnessed the end of the 37-year drought between Triple Crowns with American Pharoah's capturing one of the elite prizes in all of sports. This book celebrates many of the wonderful horses that earned their grade 1 victories between 2000 - 2014, casting their legacies on paper for future generations at the exact moment history turns a new page in the Sport of Kings. This book is about the horses. Not just horses in general, but these grade 1 winning racehorses. Ed Bowen examines each horse the way a doctor holds up an x-ray for a detailed evaluation of each horses' racing career, pedigree, and other colorful facts. A lifetime in the Thoroughbred industry has made him a walking encyclopedia of racing information. Try to imagine sitting on the porch with a glass of lemonade hearing his tales told with his Southern gentleman charm. Yet, his reverence for racing and his eloquent presentation would be welcomed in any venue in the Sport of Kings.
