"Bert Sugar wears his hat and waves his cigar and looks like some old-time fight manager. But this is far from being true. Bert Sugar is a brilliant man. And pride would not allow him to do a book that doesn't reflect this much work and care for English: 'Robinson Crusoe without a boat.' The reader gets a big break with this one." -Jimmy Breslin, Pulitzer Prize Winner, author of Sunny Jim: The Life of America's Most Beloved Horseman-James Fitzsimmons
"Even Damon Runyon would have considered Bert Randolph Sugar to be Runyonesque. Here, he takes the reader beyond the rail or the $2 window and behind the scenes, with the rich cast of characters who make up the Sport of Kings." -Bob Costas, NBC and HBO Sports
"Bert Sugar's Horse Sense is a great read, capturing racing's unique and colorful history with humor, priceless anecdotes, and genuine love and respect for the noble equine competitors who define the game." -Tim Smith, Commissioner, National Thoroughbred Racing Association
"The roll-call of unforgettable characters from owners to trainers to jockeys to the horses themselves-the whole mystique of this addictive sport is spelled out for you in a book that lives up to its subtitle, An Inside Look . . . Before you hurry off to Belmont, Gulfstream, or Hollywood Park, or to your nearest OTB parlor, you've got a winner with your ticket to Horse Sense." -Budd Schulberg, author, Academy Award Winner, On the Waterfront
"The business of horse racing can be dry stuff, but not with Bert Sugar on the case. He mixed the dollars and cents with the colorful characters and nonsense and came up with a potent sporting cocktail. Horse Sense is a must-read for any fan of the Sport of Kings." -Jason Levin, author of From the Desert to the Derby
