Baker & Taylor
Presents a biography of the race horse from his birth, through his training and winning of the Kentucky Derby, through his devastating injury two weeks later at the Preakness Stakes, to his death in January 2007.

Simon and Schuster
He was bred to be a champion. He was born to run. Everyone said he would be one of the greatest racehorses of all time. Everyone said he would take a place in history next to Triple Crown winners like the fabled Secretariat.

Then, in one sickening, heart-stopping moment, everything changed. Suddenly he was no longer racing for glory; he was fighting for his life. And the horse bred to be a champion became much more.

He became a symbol of hope and courage for an entire nation.
