    Story
    (42)

    Many astonishing and affecting things happen at the racetrack, and the mysterious universe of horse racing, passionate, cold-hearted, pure, corrupt, is woven into a marvelous tapestry of joy and love, chicanery, folly, greed, and reckless courage. Spanning two years on the circuit, from Kentucky and California to New York and Paris, Horse Heaven, puts us among trainers, nervey jockeys, billionaire breeders, and restless track wives.

    Julie Delio says: "I wish I could review book and narrator separately"
    "not a book about horse racing"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    omg what a pile of manure. i see a book with a jock belly down and racing riding and the book i receive is a woman romanticizing about a foal and polite little stories. to be honest my only recollection of this book was I GOT RIPPED OFF. this is my first written review in 13 years on Audible. biggest stinker in my 300+ collection of audio books.


    Has Horse Heaven turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I will be more careful next time and not trust a cool cover.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Sappy little stories nothing to do with horse racing.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger cause i got ripped off for a book credit. False advertising.


    Any additional comments?

    The front cover of the book should be of a nice old woman with a foal and maybe a mare in a distant field. This book had nothing to do with horse racing.
