Dancer's Image Emmy
Monday, August 04 2014
Congratulations to HRTV, Amy Zimmerman, and Steve Schiedler!
They picked up an Emmy for their documentary about Dancer's Image and his controversial disqualification for an alleged drug violation after winning the Kentucky Derby. Major source material for the documentary was my book, Dancer's Image: The Forgotten Story of the 1968 Kentucky Derby. The book won the Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award for the best book about Thoroughbred racing published in 2011, and an American Horse Publications award as the best equine book of the year.
Signed copies of Dancer's Image and my other books for The History Press (Noor: A Champion Thoroughbred's Unlikely Journey from California to Kentucky and Cañonero II: The Rags to Riches Story of the Kentucky Derby's Most Improbable Winner) are available by clicking on the "Books" tab.
