Harry de Leyer first saw the horse he would name Snowman on a bleak winter afternoon between the slats of a rickety truck bound for the slaughterhouse He recognized the spark in the eye of the beaten up horse and bought him for eighty dollars On Harry s modest farm on Long Island, the horse thrived But the recent Dutch immigrant and his growing family needed money, and Harry was always on the lookout for the perfect thoroughbred to train for the show jumping circuit so he reluctantly sold Snowman to a farm a few miles down the road. But Snowman had other ideas about what Harry needed When he turned up back at Harry s barn, dragging an old tire and a broken fence board, Harry knew that he had misjudged the horse And so he set about teaching this shaggy, easygoing horse how to fly One show at a time, against extraordinary odds and some of the most expensive thoroughbreds alive, the pair climbed to the very top of the sport of show jumping. Reminiscent of the inspiring, against the odds success story that made Seabiscuit a best seller, The Eighty Dollar Champion tells of the dramatic and inspiring rise to stardom of an unlikely duo, based on the insight and recollections of the Flying Dutchman himself Their story captured the heart of Cold War era America a story of unstoppable hope, inconceivable dreams, and the chance to have it all Elizabeth Letts s message is simple Never give up, even when the obstacles seem sky high There is something extraordinary in all of us.
