Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara B. Disckind
This mini-biography of a racehorse named Freddie and his offspring Baroness interweaves themes of compassion, patience, determination, and hard work into a reality that is at times sad and at times triumphant. Soon after winning the Kentucky Derby, Freddie retires to the pastures of his parents and falls in love with Rosie, a blind mare. Their first foal, Baroness, is an insecure, shy filly who is bought by a kind and gentle girl who lives in Ireland. The two of them overcome great emotional and physical obstacles to win the prestigious Irish horse race, the Oaks.
