From the Publisher
Annotation The author spent 35 years as the turf writer for the Lexington Herald-Leader and knows her horses, but with her new book she has broadened her gaze to examine a wide spectrum of political and social developments that shaped the state of Kentucky after the Civil War. Already blessed with bluegrass and an elite culture of Thoroughbred owners and breeders, Kentucky was hit with a series of blows to the nascent horse industry including, among other factors, the rise of the sport in New York State. Wall shows how a number of astute businessmen--aided (unintentionally) by the rise of the Temperance Movement in the East--helped to shift the center of the Thoroughbred industry back to Kentucky.
