DNF'd. I never thought I would struggle to finish a book about horse racing, but the writing is so weak and the main character so melodramatic that I couldn't do it.

I love this book. I didn't expect this much christianity in it. You rarely get books like that!! I definitely can tell that this is a christian book. I love it. It also makes me love it more because I love horses and racing. I am glad that there are still good books like this in the world. I want to read these books, also by Lauraine Snelling: Golden Filly Collection Two; High Hurdles Collection One; High Hurdels Collection Two. Thses are also good sounding books. I am glad that the Lord gave me ...more

I love these books! I was rereading this series after watching the Kentucky Derby. I first read this series as a teenager, and I love them just as much reading them as an adult. I grew up loving horses and there were not many books much less series about horses. I love the premises, I love the characters. This series is inspirational and a must read for horse lovers.

This is a wonderful horse book and ACTUALLY written by someone who ACTUALLY knows horses! Pretty realistic and emulates the life of a real teenager who makes mistakes and has emotions like real people do.

Lauraine Snelling writes in a way that captures the reader.
I couldn't put the book down until I was finished and even then I wanted to read more.
And its not all about horses as some books tend to be like that.
A really great read and would recommend it to anyone!
