Boca Raton, Fla. - Authors Victoria M. Howard and Bob Marks have announced that their recently released book, Meadow Skipper, the untold story, has been released nationwide.

The book is an unofficial biography of a champion Standardbred race horse, who singlehandedly changed the direction of an entire breed of animal.

Meadow Skipper, the untold story, is an unforgettable saga of an equine Rocky Balboa, who overcame insurmountable odds to emerge as harness racing's greatest progenitor since Adam. This story is relayed in a unique way to authors Howard and Marks -- straight from the horse's mouth as only he could tell it.

"The book is not just for equine lovers," said author Victoria M. Howard, "but also for sports enthusiasts and those who cherish the rags-to-riches underdogs who overcome challenges at any cost. It reads like a breathtaking feel-good roller-coaster ride, and in the end, you too will believe!"

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or

"We just found out that our book is currently ranked the #2 featured book at Tate Publishing this season," Howard said. "I think it would make a great holiday present for any equine, animal or sports enthusiast."

Howard is an internationally published author. Her book, Why Women Love Bad Boys, is now sold in 15 countries. Howard, who has trained and raced Standardbred horses, is the co-author of Roosevelt Raceway: Where It All Began and 12 other books. She also writes a relationship column called Dear Victoria in a South Florida paper. In 2011, she was awarded VIP Woman of the Year by Who's Who Women Worldwide. She lives in Boca Raton, Florida, with her dog, Max.

Marks, who was recently inducted into the Harness Racing Hall of Fame, has been a long time racing handicapper, pedigree expert and writer. He has also bred and merchandised thousands of Standardbred horses throughout his career. He is also a published poet, lyricist and broadcaster.
