Descubre las historias de la SERIE Manhattan Tribune con esta primera entrega.
Foxworth doesn’t know where he’s headed. He doesn’t know when he’ll return to his new home at the ranch…but no matter. There’s lots of road time with Meko in his beat up truck. Meko decides to use that time to tell Foxworth the first ever account of the Run For Roses: The story of how and why he and his cousin Sunny (who he thinks of as a brother) dedicated a road trip through the Dear Old Southland from New Orleans to Louisville, Kentucky.
Meko’s Run For Roses begins with the two cousins in New Orleans for the 2018 Jazz Fest. In N'awlins, they have themselves a ball. Partying, eating, drinking, taking in all that New Orleans has to offer. Late the final night before they fly home, they receive a phone call from Sunny's mother. She has devastating news. Von Rotz, friend and mentor to them both, has life threatening cancer. He’s on his deathbed. Von Rotz sold most of his belongings to pay for experimental treatment, including his sailboat Alysheba, his most prized possession. Von Rotz bought Alysheba with winnings from a Derby he attended in the 1980s. In recent years, he used the boat as his home.
With dawn approaching, Meko and Sunny realize the Kentucky Derby is only one week away. They decide to change their flights and plans. They decide to dedicate a road trip to their hero Von Rotz. They want to do it as Von Rotz would with relentless spontaneity. They want to see, do, eat, and drink it all in. Their goal is to end their trip in Louisville for the 144th run for the roses. At the Derby, they want to try and win enough money to buy back Von Rotz's boat and pay his medical bills. Along the way, Meko and Sunny have a trip unlike any they could ever have expected. Will they make it to the Derby? Will they win big? Can they save their dear friend's life?
As Meko and Foxworth drive south down the west coast, Foxworth realizes their road trip is connected to the mystery riddled Run For Roses. But he can’t figure out why. An intrepid freelance journalist, Meko Torres is always chasing down his next big story. What story is Meko working on this time?
