Praise

“A well-written story about a horse who defied every influence in his life to prove to everyone that their priorities were not his. A compelling example of the nature of anyone, of any animal, who has an unusual agenda and sticks to it.” —Steve Smith, writer and star of The Red Green Show
 
“William Thomas is a very funny writer who animates the memorable story of Zippy Chippy with hilarity and heart. And when you dig beneath the amusing travails of a perpetual also-ran,  you’ll learn something special about life, perhaps even your own. A wonderful and insightful tale.”—Terry Fallis, author of Poles Apart and the Leacock Medal for Humour-winning The Best Laid Plans
 
“In a world where winning is everything, it’s refreshing to read a book about the celebration of just trying. William Thomas’s tale about Zippy Chippy, a horse that was bred to win but born to lose, is funny, heartwarming, and oddly inspirational. If you only read one book about a man and his horse this century, make it The Legend of Zippy Chippy: Life Lessons from Horse Racing’s Most Lovable Loser.” —Colin Mochrie, comedian and author of Not Quite the Classics

“This engaging equine biography blends the story of Zippy Chippy’s incredible string of losses with fascinating anecdotes about other notorious also-rans. Thomas’s witty romp through the checkered career of horsedom’s most famous loser reminds us that winning isn’t everything. Unlike its underdog subject, The Legend of Zippy Chippy crosses the line a winner.” —Andrew Peacock, author of Creatures of the Rock

“In this hilarious and often poignant story, Zippy Chippy shows us how an unquenchable spirit and zest for the game of life can turn losers into winners.” —Lloyd Robertson, CTV News
