Legends of Kentucky: "
Horse breeders like to put their faith in long shots. And Tom took a long shot on me too. If Charismatic was the “tubby” horse with low odds, I was the bad student with a low GPA who discovered writing a little too late in high school. I spent my twenties on one side of the bar or another. But even on my worst days, Tom never treated me like someone who wanted to be a writer. In his mind, and certainly in his mail stack, I had always been one.
Charismatic is currently living the high life as a stud in Japan. Me? I’ve got my own book out there now. And that just would not have happened without Tom Roach."
