15 March 2006

 

To Whom It May Concern:

 

In 2004 our company was fortunate enough to acquire a book written over 50 years ago by the noted Italian horseman and statesman, Federico Tesio.  As publishers to the Thoroughbred racing industry, we knew we had to share Tesio’s thoughts on breeding to our customers.

 

Our first challenge was to find a translator who could absorb the specialized material relating to the breeding, training and behavior of the Thoroughbred and relate it truly to the reader.  We were lucky.  We found Maria Burnett.

 

Ms. Burnett carefully translated Tesio’s manuscript with the goal of capturing every nuance and every subtlety it contained.

 

Maria was a quick study on the specialized language of horse breeding and racing.  She worked closely with us to make certain Tesio’s thoughts on genetics and biomechanics were correctly interpreted. Of equal importance, she managed to capture the style and tone of a manuscript written in another era.

 

In addition to having fine translation skills, Maria Burnett’s work ethic was without fault.  She met our deadlines, rechecked her translation time and time again, and reviewed the entire manuscript several times to insure that nothing was left out or misconstrued.

 

If we are every lucky enough to find another great Italian manuscript on the breeding of fine horses, Maria will be the first person we call.

 

Sincerely,

Jan Meerdink

Managing Director
