Join this promising Thoroughbred on his adventures from his first days in the pasture to the excitement of Churchill Downs, the home of the Kentucky Derby. Share in Freddie's failures and triumphs as he discovers what it takes to win the race.
Kathryn Cocquyt is also the author of Pelican's Little Freddie's Legacy. She loves the track and enjoys riding and competing hunters at Fieldstone Riding Club in Moorpark, California.
