PHILADELPHIA, April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In a newly published audiobook, "Quips, Quotes & Oats: Smarty Jones Talks," the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and near Belmont Stakes winner opens up about his life on and off the racetrack. Based on the previously published print edition by Robert L. Merz, with new narration by Dan McGowan, Smarty is brought to life through humorous dialogue, ringing sound effects, and smooth musical interludes.
The one-hour, fifty-minute audiobook takes the reader on a journey from Smarty's early years in Philadelphia to fame and fortune running for the Triple Crown. Experience the emotion as Smarty runs for the Roses and carries America's hopes on his back. Pony up with a feel-good story, and learn how this blue-collar horse touched and restored the lives of those around him.
America's horse gives the inside story of his family, friends, fans and place in history. The thoroughbred thinker hurls some zingers, and throws a few ringers on the horseracing establishment. In this fact-based fable, Smarty gives an education ranging from the history of the horse to the traits of a champion.
Smarty acts as philosopher and humorist for his team of heartwarming characters--owners Roy and Pat Chapman; trainer John Servis; jockey Stewart Elliott; lead pony Butterscotch; and a host of other notables. He provides a stable's worth of wisdom and lessons of life in the fast lane.
"Quips, Quotes & Oats" is an audiobook suitable for listeners of all ages. With a focus on entertaining and teaching the reader, the narration appeals to a wide audience seeking both fact and fiction. This easy-to-follow fairy tale will bring back memories of Smarty's legendary ancestor Secretariat, and the fabled Seabiscuit. More than just an audiobook of humor and wit, this is a story with meaning and moral.
