I adored this volume of the Horse Diaries series. Risky Chance is a thoroughbred colt born in the 1930's and bred to race. He has heart and drive and talent, and he tells his story from the time he races his playmates up and down the fence as a yearling through his career as a race horse. Not everything that happens to a race horse is glory and roses, and author Alison Hart doesn't mince details when things take a wrong turn for Chance. But this book is extremely suitable for young readers while giving an even-handed account of what a race horse might actually think of his circumstances. As a horse lover, I loved it.
