In ""Kentucky Horse Country"", renowned photographer James Archambeault captures the natural beauty of Kentucky's Bluegrass region and the thoroughbred industry for which it is famous. ""Kentucky Horse Country"" contains 165 full-color images, from tender scenes of mares and foals grazing, to the excitement of race day at Keeneland, to gorgeous landscapes of white fences enclosing lush rolling hills. The book also includes rare photographs of some of the legendary horses that have made horse racing so exciting and popular: Affirmed, Spectacular Bid, Secretariat, Seattle Slew, and others.The photographs in ""Kentucky Horse Country"" are accompanied by captions and narrative descriptions by Archambeault, as well as an informative introduction to the history of thoroughbreds in the Bluegrass by preeminent racing historian Edward L. Bowen. The book also includes a foreword by Kentucky native Steve Cauthen, the youngest jockey ever to win the Triple Crown. Archambeault's latest work is a Kentucky treasure, for both fans of horses and horse racing and for lovers of the beauty of the Bluegrass.
