SUNNY JIM by Jimmy Bres


Email this review


Sunny Jim has been, and at age 87 still is, by all odds one of the best known and most revered figure in American horse racing. His colorful career as supervisor of the working lives of some of the best horses ever to fly the distance began when he was only about five. Surrounded always by a large, boisterous Irish family, teamed with a wise and thrifty spouse, fortified by a youthful background of hard work, Mr. Fitz took everything in stride. His biography is pungent, nostalgic, and very much alive, a fine tribute with a lot of information on the history of horse racing in this country.
