Customer Review

on August 7, 2002
What does it take to make it as a jockey? How does it feel to ride a champion? For the answers to these questions and many more, pick up a copy of Gary Stevens; memoir, THE PERFECT RIDE. Co-author Merv Kaufman does an excellent job of capturing Stevens' voice and chronicling his rise from Idaho farm boy to champion race rider. There's a lot of great stuff in here from an inside view of the jock's room to fascinating stories about racing from around the globe. This isn't just another sports star memoir. It's a story of triumph over adversity, packed with scores of anecdotes about the jockeys, trainers, owners and horses who make the game great.
