Summary

Seven lifelong friends and racing fans since their university days strike it lucky at Saratoga Race Track when they combine to win a million-dollar race. They use some of their profits to buy race horses, one of which, The Badger Express, turns out to be a sensational runner, stallion, and money maker. Then, years later, the men begin dying, one by one, targets of a professional assassin.

The always irreverent Jack Doyle returns to the race track, volunteering to aid FBI agents in a search for criminals fixing races and gets involved in the investigation of the murders of the Significant Seven, while also finding himself protecting René Rison, the favored daughter of the Significant Seven’s leader, Arnie Rison.

Critic reviews

“McEvoy is a racing expert whose knowledge permeates the pages, and, like any good tout, he's full of amusing stories about horses, bettors, and trackmen.” ( Publishers Weekly)
