Bonnie Alonzo is the proud owner of a horse named Shadow. Shadow comes from the very complicated world of horse racing, where his name was Judge Moore. He is the great-grandson of a magnificent Triple Crown winner. I will be taking you on a journey through just part of his life — his life as I know it, since I have had him. I will be telling you this story from an inexperienced horse owner’s view. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed having Shadow as a part of my life.

Racing in the Shadow of Greatness is a quick easy read. This is not a long story as I read it in one evening, but it is quite engaging. Shadow's story had me teary one minute, laughing the next. I enjoyed the entire book. It is a must read for animal lovers everywhere.

I think this book is geared more toward young adults than adults in its writing style. It doesn't flow very well, and you get a very step by step log of actions in each paragraph. The book really wasn't what I expected. I would have liked to have had more in depth look into the horse's personality and history (although that might have been hard to come by). I enjoyed reading how Bonnie rescued the horse and made every effort to improve this horse's life for the future. I wish her the best of luck with that and hope she enjoys each day with Shadow.
