In the Sport of Kings, races aren't made just by the animals that run them, but by the voices that call them. This book covers 11 of the top racetrack announcers in the United States: Tom Durkin, Kurt Becker, Dave Rodman, Michael Wrona, Terry Wallace, Larry Collmus, John Dooley, Luke Kruytbosch, Dave Johnson, Robert Geller and Trevor Denman. Based on extensive interviews, each chapter is devoted to a single announcer, addressing details of his life in the profession.
