** spoiler alert ** I most definitely give this book 5 stars!

And I most definitely give the '79 movie made from this book 5 negative stars.

Do not even bother watching the movie: it doesn't follow the plot; it doesn't have a horse who looks like the Black; the Alec character is gooby; Alec's father isn't even in the movie; the setting was changed for no good reason I can tell; and the ending (at the race) is asinine!

Which is a horrible thing to happen to a book, especially this one, because this story is really, really good.
