"Muddle your mint, put on your Big Hat, make your way to Millionaire's Row and dive straight into the fastest two minutes in Derby trivia. You won't need a tip sheet or a bookie to pick the winners in this great trip through Derby lore."
- Dr. Keith Gaddie, native Kentuckian and award-winning author
"There are 20,000+ Thoroughbred foals born every year but only 20 three-year-olds line up in the gate for the Kentucky Derby. The Derby has always been the gold standard by which every horseman's dream is measured. In Kentucky Derby IQ, Joel honors the breeders, owners, trainers, jockeys, grooms and most of all the horse."
- Bill Whitman, former manager of Calumet Farm
"Joel's Kentucky Derby IQ book is certainly fun but it has also become an important research guide for our Derby broadcasts."
- Lee Cruse, radio host News Talk 590 WVLK, television personality and stand-up comic
"Kentucky Derby IQ adds another level of fun to the greatest two minutes in sport. Joel's engaging style makes the book enjoyable long past the first Saturday in May."
