Northern Dancer

The Legend and His Legacy

Book - 1995
Rate this:
When Northern Dancer won the Kentucky Derby in the spring of 1964 people poured into the streets to celebrate. Northern Dancer had not only waltzed off with North America's most cherished trophy, but had also run the Derby faster than any horse in history.

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.
