When Funny Cide was born, not too many people noticed. He seemed too small for a racehorse, especially one who could win the biggest race of all-the Kentucky Derby. But like any race, once the Derby starts any horse can win. With the love and support of an old-time trainer, a down-on-his-luck jockey, and a group of high school buddies who bought Funny Cide just for fun, the little horse grew into a powerhouse thoroughbred. And on Derby day, it was Funny Cide who sailed across the finish line first. Funny Cide's courageous run won him a nation of fans and the Eclipse Award for Horse of the Year. With Barry Moser's breathtaking illustrations bringing his story to life, A Horse Named Funny Cide is the perfect book for horse lovers of all ages.
