BROKEN The Podcast-Companion Audio for BROKEN-The Suspicious Death of Alydar and the End of Horse Racing's Golden Age

Fred M. Kray

One fateful November night, Alydar mysteriously broke his leg while alone in his stall at 10 pm. An insurance investigation ensued, and his injury was declared an accident. $41.5 million was paid out by Lloyds of London and Golden Eagle Insurance Company. Later the FBI would get involved and there would be two federal trials.

BROKEN, one part true-crime and one part courtroom drama, is set in the evocative history of the adrenaline-filled days of horse racing's golden age. The author interviews over 25 witnesses in order to discover the truth about the death of the magnificent racehorse  and reaches an unexpected and startling conclusion.
