Let me admit right up front that this gets four stars more for sentimental reasons than for being in any way an accurate portrayal of a Thoroughbred stud farm or life in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky. The Thoroughbred series is more of a Fantasy Island for my mind and battered spirit. I was not too impressed with this particular book the first time I read it in my 20s but quite enjoyed it now in my late 40s.

I loved all the books in this series! Seriously. I devoured them when I was a preteen and teenager. I recently revisited them when I was cleaning boxes of books out of my parents basement. They were pretty much as I remembered. Although there is some "people stuff" that is great, these are largely about horse-human relationships and racing. For a horse-crazy girl (and now grown woman) these were/are great books. Highly recommend for horse-hungry preteens, teens,and even young adults.

I am currently reading this book, so far so good. I enjoy reading books about animals. This book is very interesting and adventurous. I feel like I am actually in the book and not just reading it. I am looking forward to finishing it.

A great series for tweens that love horses and/or are interested in horseback riding or racing. Teaches about the struggles of working with animals and the benefits.

It was so good, and I like how they keep introducing new characters each book! Fleet Goodness sounds adorable and so does Wonders Pride!
