The Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame announced today it will host the launch of “Rivers of Gold,” the most recent work of Muriel Lennox, author of international best-seller, “Northern Dancer: the legend and his legacy.” The event will take place Sunday, October 15, 2017 from noon to 2:00 p.m. in the Hall of Fame at Woodbine racetrack in Etobicoke, Ontario.
“Rivers of Gold” takes readers on a remarkable journey back in time to the headwaters of the most powerful genetic streams fuelling today’s great Thoroughbred champions. Along the way they will not only encounter extraordinary events and horses, but an often colourful cast of human characters.
“Our decision to host the launch on the day of the Canadian International and EP Taylor Stakes,” offered Hall of Fame president, John Stapleton, “amplifies the significance of Canadian bloodlines on the most outstanding horses the world over. Furthermore, the history and discovery of Canada’s four Rivers of Gold further enhances the many events this year in celebrating our 250th Anniversary of Horse Racing in this country.”
Copies of Lennox’s new book will be available for purchase and autographs at the launch event, along with copies of her earlier books “Northern Dancer: the legend and his legacy”, “Dark Horse: Unravelling the Mystery of Nearctic”, “The Horse and The Tiger” and “E.P. Taylor: A Horseman and His Horses”.
The Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame, located inside the west entrance of Woodbine Racetrack, honours the best in Canadian horse racing and celebrates the history of the sport in Canada. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the books at the event will benefit the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame.
