About the Author

LOU SAHADI is the author of several classic sports books, including "Johnny Unitas: America's Quarterback, ""Say Hey: The Autobiography of Willie Mays, The Winning Edge, "the autobiography of Don Shula," and They're Playing My Game, "the autobiography of Hank Stram.


"Sahadi has successfully covered horse racing and has done justice to Affirmed and Alydar, as well as their human connections and many fans, forever connected in history as the combatants of the greatest rivalry ever seen on the American turf. Sahadi specializes in writing about sports history and keeping the reader's interest from cover to cover, and he clearly succeeds here, aided by an already exciting story that just needed to be told by such a master of his craft. This book is highly recommended for all fans of racing history, as well as to fans of American sports history, as the 1970's truly were the golden age of horse racing." "There is no greater atmosphere than the Triple Crown and Sahadi captures the spirit of it. A must read for everyone."--Hank Goldberg, ESPN reporter "One of the greatest racing rivalries of all time deserves an equally world-class storyteller to make it come alive so many years later. Mr. Sahadi gets you so close to the action, you can almost smell the hay in the stalls of these two equine superstars."--Leonard Shapiro, columnist, "The "Washington Post"" "Brings to life a time in racing that no longer exists."--Ron Borges, columnist, "Boston Herald"" ""No question, Affirmed-Alydar is racing's greatest rivalry. Lou Sahadi is a masterful storyteller who vividly brings it back to life...The book is a winner."--Sal Marchiano, former sports anchor
