Many people have the idea that a horse has to win the Triple Crown to be a great horse; leaving the public mired in the remorse of near misses.  However, "A Brush With Greatness" presents a more encompassing view that greatness can come in many forms through a variety of accomplishments. Each of these horses achieved a pinnacle in the sport; some for a brief moment while others carved out their own timeless legend.   This book recalls the stories of many of the best Thoroughbred race horses since the year 2000.  This is done through the words of renowned author and historian Ed Bowen and brought to life by the talented brush of artist Robert Clark.  Instead of what could have been, we prefer to remember these horses with the proper sense of deserved reverence.
