Boca Raton, FL - Meadow Skipper will be at the Harrisburg, PA Standardbred Yearling Sales starting on Sunday, November 1.

At least in spirit and bloodlines he will be!

Meadow Skipper, the untold story, written by Victoria Howard and Bob Marks, is an unofficial biography of the world champion harness racing horse, who singlehandedly changed the direction of an entire breed of animal. Every pacing horse sold at the upcoming sale can trace their bloodlines to Meadow Skipper, who passed away in 1982.

The book will be available at the table area throughout the sale in Harrisburg and co-author Bob Marks will be there to autograph copies.

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 www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.

"I encourage everyone coming to the Harrisburg sale to stop by and see me," Marks said, "We can talk about the book and about Meadow Skipper as I saw him race throughout most of his career. The book will make the perfect holiday present for the equine lover in your family."
