Los Angeles Times:  “I came across this book… that I think a lot of you might like. It’s light, it moves quickly, it’s fun.”

“A crazier-than-fiction tale of three young gamblers, a Mexican drug cartel and the 1988 Kentucky Derby. – Horse Racing Nation

A Top 10 Amazon Best Seller:   * Sports Biographies    * Organized Crime
  * Adventure & Travel  * Sports History   * Gambling

An inspiring true crime sports story about a filly who broke through the male-dominated world of horseracing and inspired crowds of men and women alike… along with a trio of gamblers who embark on an epic adventure… It’s Seabiscuit meets Narcos, and the best non-fiction adventure and gambling story ever told.

When the gamblers unknowingly place their bet with members of a suspected drug cartel at a racetrack in Tijuana, Mexico, they must figure out how to claim their prize — without getting killed in the process. In a heart-pounding race of their own across the U.S.-Mexico border, the trio come face-to-face with suspected killers, are arrested by the Border Patrol, and fumble their way through the riskiest bet of their lives.

– Los Angeles Times award winning sportswriter Steve Springer –
“The drama is just beginning at the Tijuana Mexico betting windows, after Winning Colors wins the Kentucky Derby!”

– Associated Press, USA TODAY, ESPN, SI.com award winning writer Brant James –
“80s nostalgia, high-stakes bets and some intrigue at the Mexican border make this a tale… Paul’s description of picking out the perfect Miami Vice suit for a trip to Tijuana or his indulging in other tidbits from his youth, but the tale takes on a standard-def neon vibe that would go well with a score by Phil Collins”.

– Tobias Schliessler, ASC, Cinematographer of Beauty and the Beast (2017), Dreamgirls (2006), and Lone Survivor (2013) –
  “It’s a wonderfully stylish and entertaining story filled with action, suspense, and a lot of heart.”
