Each year, literally thousands of retired or injured thoroughbred racehorses are abandoned or consigned to a dismal fate in slaughterhouses. Even the Kentucky Derby winner, Ferdinand, died an anonymous death in a Japanese slaughterhouse. In Saving Leslie Jones, award-winning journalist Dave Joseph relates tales of the stirring rescue and rehabilitation work being done by the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation and others to save these most noble of creatures. Internationally noted photojournalist Jon Kral focuses his incisive lens-manship on this compelling and up lifting story. Together, Kral and Joseph have created a striking tribute to the largesse of spirit and unfettered joy behind this movement.
