Monograph Mile update

The finalists for the Castleton Lyons-Thoroughbred Times Book Award (aka the Monograph Mile) have been announced, and ... as usual, I had the exacta, but one of those darn shippers broke up my trifecta.

The finalists are:
* Ruffian: A Racetrack Romance by William Nack
* Not by a Longshot: A Season at a Hard-Luck Horse Track by T. D. Thornton
* Dubai Millenium: A Vision Realised, A Dream Lost by Rachel Pagones

According to the Keeneland website, the three authors will be signing copies of their books at Keeneland on April 6. We weren't planning a trip to Keeneland this year, but maybe I can sweet talk the King into gassing up the old bookmobile...
