From the Publisher

Maryland horseman and Eclipse Award-winning author Josh Pons chronicles the daily adventures and challenges of his family's small stable of Thoroughbred racehorses.


"I challenge anyone who has read the 288 thought-provoking diary pages to declare there was nothing new for them in the book or that they didn’t witness their own past experiences in the moving vignettes about life and family."
– Paul Daley, The Lowell Sun

"Pons is a fluid and talented writer who makes it look easy—which means he works desperately hard at the craft, getting it done after 16-hour days and making the rest of us look like slackers in the bargain."
– Jay Hovdey, Daily Racing Form

"His diary is an hypnotic read, a deeply moving human and equine drama…Oftentimes, sequels are poor imitations of the original, whether it be that of a movie, play or book. Merryland: Two Years in the Life of a Racing Stable is, however, as enthralling as Country Life Diary; a book to be savored, read again and again, and occupy a permanent place on a bookshelf."
