World champion Hall-of-Famer “Beach” was a Canadian-sired superstar pacer—perhaps the greatest pacer and Standardbred sire of all time. From a humble lineage, he smashed records, setting a single-season earning record as a three-year-old.
This is the story of a horse who captivated the world with his speed, courage, and near-flawless gait. Generous illustrations and dozens of interviews tell a story of improbabilities and magic. Feel the pull of harness racing by the award-winning author of Year of the Horse, Coastal Lives, and Memoir: Conversations and Craft.
