"Combining thorough research with an excellent writing style, this volume goes beyond such personal accounts as Jane Smiley's A Year at the Races (2004) and Nan Mooney's My Racing Heart (2002). Not about the sport of horseracing per se, this is an entertaining and enjoyable anthropological study of the relationships between humans and animals."(Choice)
"Cassidy has created an engaging study that would appeal to anyone with even a passing interest in horse racing."(Jeff Meyer Register of the Kentucky Historical Society)
"[A] comprehensive and entertaining book."(Margaret Taylor Journal of the Royal Anthropological Inst.)
