Place Your Bets on These Horse Country Titles from UPK

If you’re anywhere near Kentucky’s Bluegrass region this time of year, you know it is Thoroughbred racing season. The Kentucky Derby may give the state big attention in the spring, but at Lexington’s Keeneland Race Track, the Fall Meet in October is just as popular—and there is hardly anything as beautiful as the region in autumn.

In honor of racing time in the Bluegrass, enjoy one of these great books about horse country:
