Another fun book. It made me think a little more about horseracing than I am accustomed to. I wonder how much of the book was true. It was a nice Cinderella story. Noble horse from Arabia arrives in Europe and is treated like a cart horse until finally his sired children start winning lots of races and he is redeemed. Undercurrent of proving oneself no matter what is stacked against you was uplifting.
