This is a great book. When I bought it, I couldn't pick wether I wanted it or another book, but i'm so glad that I picked this one! The last race is so good, you feel like you in it! You'll love the ending and the whole book!

This is a wonderful book! It's a very realistic look into the life of a jockey. I reccomend it. Check it out!

When a barn fired destroys an uninsured barn, with Black Minx an unsure bet, Alec and Henry reluctantly bring the Black back into the racing circuit to rebuild the barn before winter. Racing enthusiasts around the country can't wait to see the stallion back in action, but the handicappers can't keep the weight off his back, even though evenly matched with Eclipse and Casey. The ride of his life is in the Brooklyn Handicap with hands down who has the better horse.
