I enjoyed this series very much. A girl who lives on a horse farm in Oregon wants to be a jockey. Finally, her dream is coming true. Just as it has come true, her father dies of cancer. After this, she learns to cope with his death by turning to God. The one thing I did not appreciate about this book was the whole boyfriend/girlfriend thing throughout the series. But, overall, I definately enjoyed them.

Horrible series for teens. There are many factual errors about horse racing here, let alone the errors about Christianity. (And now it's completely out of date.) Snelling cannot even keep track of her own characters. One of the horses suddenly changes genders in this book. The series also centers on a black colt with no golden filly anywhere. The protagonist's problems are basically impossible to relate to.

Another great book. The writer makes you really identify with her charatures. I Found myself thinkin' "man can't something go right for her?"

The book is obviously fiction as no woman jockey has won the Kentucky Derby, but I loved the story. I now want to visit Churchill Downs, even if not for the Derby, just for a race or a tour.
