With the Kentucky Derby coming up, I’m joining fellow author, Muriel Lennox, in bragging about the genetic supercharge Canada has provided to the greatest thoroughbreds of the racing world.
Ms. Lennox has unraveled a long hidden saga which can’t help but swell Canadian chests. The luck, gambles, inspiration and, too often, sheer skullduggery of racing history make her books read like thrillers.
My part is all this is my first venture into video, a tiny book trailer I put together for Muriel’s latest, Rivers of Gold. You can check it out here:
Now that I know it can be done, and was such fun, there will be more in the future, I’m sure. Meanwhile, don’t miss the Kentucky Derby on May fifth. No matter what horse you pick, it will carry Canadian fire in its veins.

Pure love of horses informs them all.
