Head to Head

Conversations with a Generation of Horse Racing Legends

With the world changing more rapidly than ever before, we risk losing history and the sense of how we have evolved unless we make a concerted effort to embrace the knowledge of those that have excelled in a particular field and paved the way forward.

The Thoroughbred industry is no exception. The voices of those who dominated the various facets of the sport and business in the latter part of the 20th century and through the first generation of the 21st are growing fainter even as their influence may endure. Some have progressed from yesterday's rookies to today's seasoned veterans; others have passed from the scene in all but memory.

Voices reveals insights into the thinking and actions of dozens of men and women who reached the top levels of success in all aspects of the Thoroughbred business; it documents the history of the industry over a roughly fifty-year period, with an accent on Central Kentucky, the heart of the Thoroughbred business; and serves as a guide to students and young people, inspiring them to both learn and continue the great tradition of human involvement with horses.

In more than twenty years of writing, Lenny Shulman has conducted hundreds of interviews with leaders and participants from all facets of the Thoroughbred world. Hearing from these successful people—in their own words—will inspire both the casual reader perhaps thinking of entering the equine world, those with an interest in the sport's history, and participants always looking to glean an extra slice of knowledge that allows them to move forward.

These interviews represent an important piece of history.
