Ride The White Horse: A Checkered Jockey's Story of Racing, Rage and Redemption

Adult; Memoir; (Market)

Eddie Donnally rode on racing’s undercard, lived inside its underbelly and became a part of its underworld. From constant bulimia, broken bones and betrayal of Boston’s infamous Winter Hill Gang, he depicts an unseen side of Thoroughbred racing. Yet the five tons of his sweat that disappeared down “hot box” drains was nothing compared to his struggles with sibling sexual trauma, same-sex promiscuity, bipolar disorder, a suicide attempt and stays in two psyche wards. Within seven months, an addiction to crack cocaine took him from newspaper writing and TV show hosting to grooming horses on the backstretch. Supernatural redemption came in a jail cell. After 17 years of Christian ministry, he holds a Doctorate in Ministry and serves as a hospice and hospital chaplain.

Eddie Donnally takes his readers on the ride of a lifetime in his autobiography. The book left me gasping for air. ~Southern cats ltdn

This is one of the most incredible stories of redemption and the grace of God that I have ever read. If it wasn't a true story, I would never have believed so much drama could take place in one man's life. To add to the book's appeal, Eddie Donnally is an award winning and highly skilled writer. The book skillfully flows like the Thoroughbred horses that Eddie rode as a jockey. I highly recommend it.~~Poet Sally Stansel

Years ago, Eddie Donnally and I shared a prestigious turf-writing award. Now Eddie's sharing a riveting, brass-knuckles story that not even some of his closest friends knew. Hollywood, pay attention. And don't worry about the inspirational happy ending getting in the way.~~Bill Christine: Eclipse Award winning former writer for the Los Angeles Times

Ride the White Horse” is enormously entertaining. It is a well written treatment of a fascinating subject, touching on all the highs and not avoiding any of the lows. Eddie Donnally is clearly a man who can talk the talk. That’s because he has definitely walked the walk.
