Racing fans and horse lovers alike will enjoy this
biography of the 1948 Triple Crown winner and record-setter Citation.
This book looks at the colt's earliest training, his rise to
prominence as a three-year-old, his triumphant return to racing after
a leg injury, and his success as Thoroughbred racing's first
millionaire with an unprecedented 16 straight victories. The story of
Citation is also a history of Calumet Farm, the famed breeding and
racing operation that dominated American racing during the 1940s.
Citations owner, Warren Wright, the father-and-son training team of
Ben and H. A. (Jimmy) Jones, and legendary jockey Eddie Arcaro figure
prominently in the story.
