Book Summary:

A Thoroughbred, a jockey and the owner-breeder-trainer come together to make racing history in 1913.


Eddie Price introduces a new book and a new character to his list of historic portrayals and programs. Price will begin in August of 2017 presenting a first person portrayal of Jockey Roscoe Tarleton Goose. Goose won the 1913 Kentucky Derby with odds of 91:1 a record that experts say will probably never be broken.


Goose who was teased while growing up for his small size found his calling with horses. A natural horseman, he turned that interest and knowledge into a lucrative career as a jockey. Riding the Kentucky bred horse Donerail , Goose felt the horse had untapped speed and persuaded owner, breeder and trainer Thomas Patrick Hayes to run the horse in the 1913 derby.
