Phil Georgeff is primarily a caller of horseraces and his book is mainly a labor of love. He knows a lot of people around horseracing (good friends with Eddie Arcaro, Citation's main jockey in his phenomenal third year) and interviewed many of them for his book. There are lots of quotes from people who knew the Joneses, the Joneses themselves, sports writers, etc., plus much gossip, and detailed writing. Georgeff feels that Citation was without a doubt THE best racehorse of all time, and he is not shy about letting you know it.
The Smith book does have some things the Georgeff book lacks. Its photo section is slightly better. Georgeff's book was a major disappointment in one area: it did not include Citation's race record, although it had a very nice index. Smith's book rectifies this in an extremely satisfactory manner: it not only has Citation's lifetime record, it has the DRF report for many of his 3-year-old races.
In my opinion, the true Citation fan needs both books for they really complement each other.
I have this book in my collection. I strongly suggest others to add it to theirs.
