The best of Horse Racing humor from America's funniest sporting cartoonist. Cartoonist, Robert Tiritilli understands "the ups and downs" of the horse racing world. This former Italian Mafia hit man has teamed with Charles Hellman, a bookie and ex-Little Leaguer, to find more ways to blend these one-panel cartoons with clever captions. They bring out the "FUNNY" in sports. The wit and satire of these cartoons and their absurdities come to life from Tiritilli's pen. His outrageous graphics poke fun at horses, jockeys, owners and fans with equal gusto. Tiritilli has freelanced and lampooned for more years than he cares to admit...
2001 North American Society for Sports History Book of the YearThis volume studies the formative period of racing between 1790 and 1914. This was a time when, despite the opposition of a respectable minority, attendance at horse races, betting on horses, or reading about racing increasingly became central leisure activities of much of British society.
Families occasionally, and unintentionally, find themselves adopting animals-a daughter brings a goldfish home from a party, a son finds a lizard in the backyard, or a stray cat stops in for a saucer of milk and never leaves. For Mary Neiswender and her family, it is a horse.
Miss Gay is as close to human as a horse can get, and like most humans, she is a pain. Many nights Mary finds herself trudging through the rain, glasses fogging, shoes squishing through the mud eroding off one of the richest Los Angeles hillsides, trying to find her wandering, one-of-a-kind horse. This big, red, one-eyed horse, with a sway back, knobby knees, and very few teeth is a disgrace to the posh neighborhood, but she quickly becomes family to the Neiswenders. The only thing they know about horses is what they've seen in western movies and television shows, but what they lack in practical knowledge, they make up for in love and compassion.
This chronicle of their hilarious adventures with Miss Gay is full of laughs and touching moments that people of all ages will enjoy. It's endearing. It's preposterousAnd it's all true!
