- How a Horse, a Trainer, a Jockey, and a Bunch of High School Buddies Took On the Sheiks and Bluebloods....and Won -

"On rare occasions, a horse like Funny Cide and his fairy-tale story comes along...reminding people just how much a racehorse and this sport can affect a person, a town, a city, a state, a country." - Steve Haskin, The Blood-Horse

"In 2003, he became "the people's horse," the unheralded New York-bred gelding who - in a time of war and economic jitters - inspired a nation by knocking off the champions and their multimillionaire owners and sweeping to the brink of the Triple Crown. Trained by a journeyman who had been knocking around racing for more than thirty years, ridden by a hard-luck jockey, and owned by a tiny stable founded by a band of high school buddies from Sackets Harbor, NY (pop: 1,386), who tossed in a few thousand dollars each and decided to follow their dream, Funny Cide became a blue-collar hero with a bit, his story crammed with colorful characters-only one of which happened to be a horse.

Written with Sally Jenkins, coauthor of Lance Armstrong's number-one bestseller "It's Not About the Bike", Funny Cide tells the whole story - the parts we know and the parts we never suspected - as it follows the group's emotional ups and downs against overwhelming odds, illness, and even scandal, to capture the imagination of millions. It is a book for the underdog in all of us - a new American classic."
