Chapter Seven provides a biographical sketch of Never Say Die’s English trainer, Joe Lawson. Lawson had been an assistant at the famous Manton training yardfor decades before he finally became head trainer at the facility that produced Triple Crown, Gay Crusader and Gainsborough, as well as dozens of other top horses. When Never Say Die arrived in Lawson’s barn, the aging trainer had won nearly every important race in England, but not the Epsom Derby.
