Down to the Wire races to deliver the latest Equine and Equestrian news to Counter-Canter Culture
In this edition of Down To The Wire, we bring you the true story of a racing legend. Who is it? Bold Ruler? Secretariat? War Admiral? Man o’ War? Northern Dancer? Native Dancer? No – but he’s related to all of them.
This Monday, get to know Zippy Chippy – the thoroughbred with the worst racing record in history but quite possibly the best owners ever. His idiosyncratic story is told in William Thomas’ new biography “The Legend of Zippy Chippy,” due out on April 5, 2016.
The New York Post writer, Maureen Callahan, has the scoop on Zippy and his trainer Felix Monserrate here: The horse that lost 100 races, but won a family’s heart.
You can preorder the book now for Kindle and in Hardcover here: “The Legend of Zippy Chippy.”
