The Fixer was created from real incidents as described in a series of interviews with Ronny Kleinberg. This story is not fiction, but the names and places have been changed to protect the guilty. The Fixer is a story about the dark side of gambling and horse racing from the tracks of Southern Ontario, Quebec, Detroit, Kentucky, and Florida.
The world of horse racing has the façade of wealthy owners; international high stakes sporting events; and the beauty, elegance, and speed of well-breed beautiful animals. In fact, horse racing is a seedy business, populated by degenerate gamblers, mobsters, and their pawns. The story of The Fixer is about a good guy in a bad situation; it’s a story of survival in a world both corrupt and dangerous.
Find out how horse racing really works; how races are fixed and by whom; what jockeys have to do to meet the weight limits; how to plug-in a horse with a machine; and how dangerous a jockey’s life really is, both on and off the track.
The Fixer is revealing, exciting, humorous, and sad. Discover the truth about horse racing; discover horse racing’s dirty secrets from an insider who literally wrote the book on how to fix a horse race.
