SWEET GRASS, A Blue Mitchell Western by William A Luckey

SWEET GRASS; Horseman and trouble-maker, Blue Mitchell escorts a race horse to Brighton Beach race track in New York in 1900. He is to deliver the horse to August Belmont, Jr. and insure the horse’s safety. Mitchell meets Willie Simms, the first jockey to professionally in the ‘crouch’ seat, and the two men are determined to keep the horse safe from the unsavory practices of the race course until the colt proves his mettle.
