NOOR by Milton Toby

NOOR by Milton Toby covers the history of more than one Thoroughbred as they run for the roses in the 1940's and 50's, mostly describing the west coast races.

Noor's competitor, Citation, as well as other famous racehorses such as Seabiscuit are featured. Also, noted horsemen are quoted: Charles Howard, Noor's owner; John Longden, jockey; and trainer Burley Parke.

This historical account of a noteworthy racehorse is well written and includes numerous photographs.

Noor was certainly a gorgeous horse!

There is currently a virtual book tour for Milt - see

Thanks for the heads up on this one, Sharon! I write a 'channel' on horse book reviews and wondered if you'd consider contributing to it as a writer?

The address is in case you are interested in checking it out, and even contributing!
