The Great Match Race: Still Making News

It's hard to believe a dozen years have passed since the publication of The Great Match Race, my book about the first major sports event in American history, an epic horse race with North-South undertones that took place in 1823.

But I'm pleased to report that the book continues to receive attention and scrutiny.

Michael S. Rosenwold of the Washington Post recently noticed parallels between the 1823 race and Justify's attempt to win modern thoroughbred horse racing's Triple Crown. He quoted my book extensively in an article that ran on the day Justify won the Preakness Stakes in my hometown of Baltimore.
