1 Heller, Bill Graveyard Of Champions: Saratoga's Fallen Favorites
Lexington, KY Eclipse Press/The Blood-Horse Inc. 2003 1581500661 / 9781581500660 Hardcover New in New dust jacket 
Hardcover is gray with copper lettering on spine. Pages are clean and tight; this is a NEW book. Illustrated with many b/w photos. Saratoga is one of the premier Thoroughbred racetracks in America, or anywhere in the world. It's set in the lovely, almost postcard perfect town of Saratoga Springs, north of New York City, and the state capital of Albany. Here is a fascinating history of horse racing, champions who succeeded, and champions who have fallen, in the more than 140 years that formal racing has been held at this famed track. One of the most famous losers in history, a victim of the track's sometimes unreliable results, was Man O'War, who suffered his only loss [20 wins in 21 starts], in 1919 to a horse prophetically named Upset. Book includes a Chronology of Major Saratoga Upsets; Champions at Saratoga; Index; Sources. ; B&W Photographs; 6 1/4 x 9 1/4; 255 pages; DJ has faint rubbing.
