About the Book
“What in God’s name are we thinking?”
As you travel with her through the ups and downs of a year in her life, you will come to see why Jo Ann believes in God, why she owns and races Thoroughbred race horses and why she sometimes thinks it is fun. Through the year’s journey, Jo Ann gives you an insight into her humor as well as the faith, grit and determination that make up the core of this crazed horsewoman. You will laugh, you will feel Jo Ann’s pain and you will cheer for both the horses and the humans. And you will come to understand why she believes hope springs eternal, particularly if you look at life–and horses–through rose colored glasses.
Jo Ann and her husband, Ken, have owned and syndicated Thoroughbred race horses for eleven years. They have experienced the joys of winning and the agonies of defeat and have lived to tell about it. Jo Ann taught school, worked as an administrator in a law firm and practiced law for eighteen years before hanging up her shingle to follow her horses. She and Ken have two sons, one daughter-in-law and two perfect grandchildren.

Read an Excerpt
“Rose Colored Horses is a humorous look at the ups and downs of owning a race horse, told through the eyes of a woman who gave up her corporate legal career to seek adventure at the track. By the time we get done following JoAnn and her horses through her “year-in-the-life” story, you will know the business, the horses, and their owner — and you most likely will want to buy a race horse of your own.” – Jean Becker, Chief of Staff to President George H. W. Bush
“Rose Colored Horses gives an unusual front-row view of the nitty gritty of the horse racing business, from dreams and celebrations, to broken bones and tough business decisions. The author is an Every Woman, easy to understand and plain-spoken in her daily memoirs.” – David Tachau, Attorney, Tachau Meek PLC
