Dan Mearns is the editor of Florida Horse magazine and Wire to Wire. He has won six Eclipse Awards and eight American Horse Publication Awards. He lives in Ocala, Florida.
A large portion of the book at the end talks about Slew's retirement to the stud farm & what happened to the people in his life. This I didn't mind so much, Slew turned out to be a fairly successful sire. AP Indy ~ one of the greatest sires of all time, is Slew's son. And the book series is called "legends" so this part goes into Slew's legacy.
Lots of nice pictures, but there isn't anything new here, if you have followed Slew's career. So...just an ok read.
Dan Mearns's book is number five in the "Thoroughbred Legends" series and he covers Seattle Slew from his birth (an ugly foal with big floppy brown ears), through his racing and breeding career, up into the year 2000. For those of us who admire racing's only undefeated Triple Crown Winner (Slew did lose a few after the Triple Crown races), this book is a satisfying read. There are also sixteen pages of black-and-white photographs of Slew from his ugly-duckling birth through a picture where we can see a few gray whiskers dotting his muzzle.
May the Slew live a thousand years through his offspring!
Detail is very good and photographs are first class.
I doubt there any books in the Thoroughbred Legions series which are not first class.
