Question ID: 753243
A book was written before 1981..it was about a practical nurse who received an inheritance from a patient. With this money she bought a Kentucky Thoroughbred horse farm. The story is about her breeding and racing horses, and about her acceptance in the Kentucky horse circles. Other parts of the book are about the Keenland Horse Sales, horse race handicapping, and ticks in horse breeding. I always thought the title was "Thoroughbred", but I have not been able to trace it. I even thought I read that it was a book of the month selection at one time. Can you find this book for me? Thank-you. PS..I have read this book several times, so I know it exists..otherwise, I must have dreamed the whole thing! It is a LONG book..something like the length of Hawaii.

Thank you! I would almost swear it was not the title, but then, guess that's why I couldn't find it. I am thrilled..
