Princess: The Miss Andretti Story, John Hunt

This is the true rags-to-riches story of Miss Andretti, the horse from nowhere, bred from nothing, who cost nothing, was originally trained by a nobody and yet conquered the racing world to become the greatest thoroughbred sprinter on earth. It is the story of David Mueller, a rough-around-the-edges country boy whose mediocre career belied his burgeoning talent. In Miss Andretti he finds his muse, and with the help of veteran trainer Lee Freedman and jockey Craig Newitt, the mare soars: five-time Group 1 champion, simultaneous holder of five track records, Australian Horse of the Year 2007 and more. But as his 'Princess' rises to superstardom, Mueller's marriage becomes strained and his daughter, chronically ill, faces death. Will he win all only to lose all? This lyrical, heart-wrenching saga will please both horseracing fanatics and newcomers alike and is sure to become a classic. It is not just a story - it is a legend.
