From the Publisher:
An uplifting personal account about a renowned jockey's relationship with the nationally mourned former Triple Crown contender describes their first race together and the months they shared at the New Bolton Animal Hospital. 60,000 first printing.
Jockey Edgar Prado writes about his special relationship with Barbaro, the undefeated Kentucky-derby winning horse that tragically shattered a leg during the Preakness (ruining their shot at the coveted Triple Crown) and leading to, after a series of failed surgeries, the horse's death. Prado's own story of rising from poverty in Peru to becoming a star jockey is equally fascinating.

My Guy Barbaro by Edgar Prado12/23/2008
This is by far the best book on Barbaro yet. Its written by Barbaro's jockey Edgar Prado and takes us from their first encounter until Barbaro's last days. Edgar writes so eloqentley that you feel as if you are there. I HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone. Make sure to have the tissues handy. Edgar leaves us with hope at the end of the book.
