What Are the Best Kentucky Derbies of All Time?

Eclipse Press

What makes a Kentucky Derby among the best of all time? Secretariat's record-setting effort? Regret's achievement as the first filly to win the vaunted classic? Legendary jockey Bill Shoemaker's misjudgment of the finish line that cost his horse the race?

"The 10 Best Kentucky Derbies" ranks these and seven others in a collection of stories by some of horse racing's best writers. This top-10 list is sure to generate debate, and even four-time Derby-winning trainer D. Wayne Lukas says in the foreword, "Obviously, the 10 best are a matter of opinion because everyone has his or her favorite Derby."

The stories in "The 10 Best Kentucky Derbies" take the reader behind the scenes, into the barns, and onto the racetrack on the first Saturday in May to experience the excitement of the world's most famous horse race. "The 10 Best Kentucky Derbies" contains the individual race charts and photos of each race.

Advanced praise for "The 10 Best Kentucky Derbies":

"'The 10 Best Kentucky Derbies' is a must-read for every horse racing fan." - Tom Hammond, NBC's Kentucky Derby broadcast anchor

"Winning the Kentucky Derby was the most emotional experience in my life, and I wish everyone had a chance to have that feeling. Reading about the 10 best Derbies brings all those emotions back." - Three-time Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Bob Baffert
