Few writers have captured the brilliance and majesty of the Thoroughbred as well as Bill Nack. His prized Sports Illustrated features and books on racing legends Secretariat and Ruffian are infused with a voice that hovers “somewhere between that of Yeats and a stablehand,” as judges wrote after honoring him recently with a lifetime achievement award for literary sportswriting.
Not only is Nack an elite weaver of tales, he grew up around horses and has held a lifelong passion for them. In this episode of Around the Track presented by Taylor Made, Nack relives some of his favorite moments at the races and behind the scenes and shares compelling and amusing stories about his life's work.
