Available everywhere! The Key to the Quarter Pole

This award-winning novel about life on the backstretch at Colonial Downs debuted in April to a great reception. Readers' comments have been wildly enthusiastic: "I couldn't put it down...I loved the characters...I felt like an insider at the track."


"The Key to the Quarter Pole" tells a rollicking story of racetrack characters struggling with moral dilemmas, large and small, all revolving around free-spirited Louisa Ferncliff as she trains her last best horse, Alice’s Restaurant.


Louisa Ferncliff is a fixer. She fixes horses with scrambled eggs for brains and counsels the lost little people on the backstretch of the racetrack. As a young racehorse trainer, Louisa—independent, free-spirited, with a laugh like wind chimes—sabotaged her promising career by trusting the wrong man. Now, as she limps towards retirement with a quirky horse and an unethical protégé, she gets a surprising second chance at happiness.
