This five-time Horse of the Year set records season after season, earned an unprecedented five Horse of the Year titles, and won legions of fans.
No racehorse of modern times was so good for so long. Racing until the age of nine, Kelso won thirty-nine of sixty-three races. This superstar of the 1960s earned an unprecedented five Horse of the Year titles, five divisional championships, set or equaled eight track records, and set three American standards. Much like Seabiscuit thirty years earlier, Kelso kept getting better as he got older, earning legions of fans with every passing year.
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
"Haskin has told the complete story of the complete horse."
--Michael Veitch, The Pink Sheet
"Like its predecessors 'Dr. Fager' and 'John Henry', (author) Steve Haskin's inspired writing and his vast knowledge of the sport help Kelso to stand apart from other books in the series"
--Linda Dougherty, The Trentonian
