This week on A Cup of Coffee and a Good Book, jennifer talks with Milt Toby, who is currently on tour with Walker Author Tours with his book Noor: A Champion Thoroughbred's Unlikely Journey from California to Kentucky.
While Seabiscuit is perhaps the best-known Thoroughbred in history, Charles S. Howard owned another remarkable race horse that should never be forgotten. Howard's Irish-bred Noor dominated the 1950 racing season, setting three world records in victories over Citation and winning the Hollywood Gold Cup by defeating a Triple Crown winner, the Horse of the Year, and the previous year's Kentucky Derby winner. Sadly, that fame faded as he failed to sire champions, and Noor was buried in an unmarked grave in the infield of a training track in Northern California.
