The Legend and His LegacyBook - 1995
The story of "Northern Dancer" is the stuff of legends. He was a little horse, dismissed time and again because of his size. Today, however, his descendants dominate racing the world over, and Northern Dancer is recognized as the greatest Thoroughbred sire in modern history. To discover what made Northern Dancer so extraordinary, Muriel Lennox takes us on a memorable ride into the sport of kings and queens. Northern Dancer, his ancestors and descendants -- from the eccentric Hyperion to the brilliant Nijinsky fairly gallop off these pages.
