The Racing Imperative
O'Dea, Joseph

O'Dea, Joseph. The Racing Imperative. Geneseo, NY: Castlerea 1998. 160p, some ills. Very good hardcover in d.j. ** The longtime USET veterinarian argues that modern racing is no longer a test for determining quality in Thoroughbreds, due to its "fad nutrition, inept training, fewer distance races, irrational medication, and excessive racing demands," as well as governmental failures. "Although O'Dea focuses here on flat racing, his words should be a warning to the leaders of and participants in every horse sport.... Concentration on the message will yield rewards."--Chronicle of the Horse. (Item ID: 10588)
