“A crazier-than-fiction tale of three young gamblers, a Mexican drug cartel and the 1988 Kentucky Derby. –Horse Racing NationA Top 10 Amazon Best Seller: * Sports Biographies * Organized Crime
* Adventure & Commute * Sports History * Gambling
An inspiring true crime sports story about a filly who broke through the male-dominated world of horseracing and inspired crowds of women and men alike… together with a trio of gamblers who embark on an epic adventure… It’sSeabiscuit meets Narcos, and the most productive non-fiction adventure and gambling story ever told.
When the gamblers unknowingly place their bet with members of a suspected drug cartel at a racetrack in Tijuana, Mexico, they will have to figure out how to claim their prize — without getting killed in the process. In a heart-pounding race of their own across the U.S.-Mexico border, the trio come face-to-face with suspected killers, are arrested by the Border Patrol, and fumble their way through the riskiest bet of their lives.– Los Angeles Times award winning sportswriter Steve Springer –
“The drama is just beginning at the Tijuana Mexico betting windows, after Winning Colors wins the Kentucky Derby!”– Associated Press, USA TODAY, ESPN, SI.com award winning creator Brant James –
“80s nostalgia, high-stakes bets and some intrigue at the Mexican border make this a tale… Paul’s description of picking out the very best Miami Vice suit for a go back and forth to Tijuana or his indulging in other tidbits from his youth, but the tale takes on a standard-def neon vibe that would go well with a score by Phil Collins”.
–Tobias Schliessler, ASC, Cinematographer of Beauty and the Beast (2017), Dreamgirls (2006), and Lone Survivor (2013) –
“It is a wonderfully stylish and entertaining story filled with action, suspense, and a large number of heart.”————————–
