Justice, Charles. The Greatest Horse of All: A Controversy Examined. Bloomington, IN: AuthorHouse 2008. xxvi, 221p, many charts and tables. As new paperbound (new, but slight shelfwear). ** Man o' War? Secretariat? Ruffian? Kelso? Applying statistical analysis to 14 categories of data--and keeping in mind unmeasurable variables--the author addresses the question of the greatest 20th-century Thoroughbreds at ages 2 through 5. Not an easy read, but with lots of interesting conclusions (hypothetical match races, etc.). Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. (Pub. at $23.45).
