Description: In 1949 Winston Churchill was persuaded by his son-in-law, Christopher Soames, to buy a gray racing colt named Colonist II. Churchill's parents had a history in thoroughbred horse racing. Jennie Churchill's father, Leonard Jerome, had helped found the American Jockey Club and had built his own racetrack, Jerome Park, in New York. Lord Randolph Churchill had owned racehorses that won prestigious stakes. Colonist II revived the Churchill colors on a racecourse and proved a winner with a heart like her owner. The story is quite inspiring. New, in dust jacket.
