I took a quick look at just TC winners and the majority were 3rd foals or later. This includes: Assault, Citation, Gallant Fox, Omaha and Affirmed and Sir Barton, Whirlaway and Secretariat an even later foal. Seattle Slew was a first foal. War Admiral and Count Fleet were 2nd foals.
The only thing I can think that would make that one so expensive is if very few were printed. But since you get everything in the later edition as you do in the earlier ones with the obvious addition of more horses, I can't see why the price difference
They will reprint it. They seem to do this after at least five years have gone by. So they are due for a new version soon
Thanks. Didn't look on Amazon as they had ones that were extremely high.
Just checked eBay. The secretariat cover edition is on for $9.54 in cloth bound listing number 97809648493910. There is also a hardcover of the same edition for $49 also on eBay. To access: put in Daily Racing Form Champions under category books and they will come up
Go to eBay. The various editions have been on there for $49 or less. You want the one published in 2010 which is Blue. This will help you for any other horses. But for just Bold Ruler. Buy the Thoroughbred Legend Series. He is volume 24 and it is available in both paperback and hardcover. The rest of the series is in ebook. BR for some reason was not. eBay and Amazon have listings for the book too

This is definitely a horse to look at for the Derby. But he is not War Admiral in size. That was Seabiscuit movie hype calling War Admiral over 17 hands. He was actually not much larger than Seabiscuit, about 15.3 and smaller tha his sire Man O War.
I believe that was in 1928 where America's Billy Barton finished second. Tipperary Tim had had a tracheotomy and the jockey carried a cork with him so that if the horse fell at the water jump, he could plug the hole in the horse's throat so he wouldn't drown. Every horse fell in that race. Billy Barton did too but was remounted to finish the race. I believe Billy Barton's statue still stands at Laurel racetrack
Wynn has a whole slew of problems, with issues on his board of directors as his ex wife tries to get a seat. His Macau casino profits have tanked since the Chinese govt has cracked down on corruption and money laundering by many of their officials. I never thought this casino would get built in Boston. So I think SD stands a chance or if a new track us built, it would have a real shot at one.
