Beloved for his thunderous, commanding voice and affable personality, Phil Georgeff, known as "The Voice of Chicago Racing," holds the world record for calling the most horse races-an astounding 96,131. During his fifty years in the sport, Georgeff brushed shoulders with every great jockey and saw just about every great horse, from 1948 Triple Crown winner Citation to 1973's Secretariat. Part memoir, part historical analysis, and part nostalgic remembrance, this book is the quintessential guide to the history of thoroughbred racing in the twentieth century.
Phil Georgeff is the most famous man in the Chicago thoroughbred horseracing world. Author of two novels on horseracing, he lives in Fairhope, Alabama. Jim O'Donnell, a staff writer for The Chicago Sun-Times, lives in Chicago, Illinois. Tom Durkin, the "voice" of NBC's annual Triple Crown and Breeders' Cup telecasts, lives in New York.
