This book is about an unusual side of horse racing, the relationship between the horse and the groom. Secretariat won the 1973 Triple Crown (Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes). Many books have been written about him, about his breeder, his owner, his jockey, and his amazing racing career. But nothing has ever been written about Eddie Sweat, Secretariat's groom. Eddie Sweat loved, nurtured, fed, bathed, protected, and nursed Secretariat. It is an interesting question to ask, "how much of Secretariat's success was due to the extraordinary care he got from Eddie Sweat?". No doubt much more than he got credit for.I would recommend this book to anyone who loves horses, and who is interested in the special relationship a horse and a man can develop.
