He died in 1989, shortly before the publication of his last novel, The Young Black Stallion, written with his son Steven.

I liked this book alot because of all the habits that Black Minx had picked up on and how Henry had fixed it. Black Minx was very head strong and she reminds me of a horse I know. I really like how they had to trick her and all the tricks she tried to pull on Alec. But in the end I am glad that she gained the trust and the will to win.

I liked that Black Minx had tricks up her sleave. With HEnry braking every single one. He is a very smart trainer and I am proud that he kept faith. I was glad the Black Minx fianlly came around to winning the race and trusting

One of Farley's best. Black Minx is a headstrong tempermental filly and Henry Dailey has a clever solution to her problem. Why are so many of Walter Farley's books out of print??? Black Stallion's Steeplechaser ( by Steven Farley) was a great book but it is not available in paperback.
