Wonder's Victory (Thoroughbred Series #4) by Joanna Campbell

Ashleigh's determined to make her dreams come true...

In her second year of racing, Wonder, the Thoroughbred filly Ashleigh Griffen has helped raise, is the star of Townsend Acres Stables — until the worst happens.

Just as Wonder is about to start training for the important Breeder's Cup race, Ally, Wonder's regular jockey, is injured and can't ride. Wonder doesn't like any other jockey, and she won't perform.

Only one person can ride Wonder now, and that's Ashleigh. She's never ridden in a race, but she's Townsend Acres' only hope. Can Ashleigh's dreams and Wonder's trust carry these two unlikely contestants into the winner's circle?

Read Thoroughbred and experience the love and friendship between a determined girl and a very special filly.

Ah! I enjoyed this book in the Thoroughbred series. Really good! Ashleigh becomes more involved than ever in Wonder's life, taking it a step further. I quite enjoyed the descriptions of the racing, and I learned new things about jockeys. It's quite interesting, both the true horse facts, and the fictional story. I was on the edge of my seat during the climax of the plot! Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Overall, it was a good book, but, if you noticed, in book #6. Wonder's Yearling, it states that 'Wonder would have kept racing if she hadn't broken her cannon bone'. And then in book 4 - 5, it says nothing about Wonder breaking her cannon bone. Why didn't they state that?

I love this book so much!!! I think it's heartbreaking when Jilly gets in the accident. I really think it's evil of that one guy to pay that man to spook wonder. My two most favorite parts are when Ashlie rases and when townsand gives her half interest. I have all the books up to around 58 and I love them all!

I cried once Wonder won the classic. If I was there, nothin would stop me from going down and get to meet my star. Wonder is a fantastic horse and I would not through that much love to another horse. All Wonder needed to be a champion was love, courage, care, and patience to lead up to a true champion like Wonder. I just love it when Wonder ran in her races and gave every ounce of heart to win and please her rider Ashliegh. Now I look up to Wonder as a lengend.

These books are good, but hardly realistic. Anyone who knows anything about racing will have realized what is wrong with Ashleigh and Wonder's story. But they are nice books.

i would have given this book more stars... 5 was the limit it is really good. how good? Then, suddenly, everything fell apart. Ashleigh gasped as Wonder swerved out and reared. Caught unaware, Jilly went flying head over heels to land in the dirt, and Wonder shot off out of control, reins flapping, up the track. It all happened so fast, for an instant, Ashleigh Charlie and Mike just stared. 'Oh my God,' Ashleigh breathed. The rest of the field swept into the stretch. Jilly's small form was sprawled, unmoving near the outside rail. Wonder was racing along, riderless, toward the finish line. 'Jilly,' Ashleigh whispered, clutching Mike's hand with white knuckles......

I loved it!!!!! It's so one of the best, because Ashleigh and Wonder are the main characters, and just for the record, I MISS YOU GUYS, and I LOVE YOU!!!!! You should totally read this book, if you like racing, and even if you don't it's still 'WONDER' ful!!!!

This was a AWSOME BOOK!! Ashleigh got to ride the horse she loves and Wonder got the perfect jockey.I am now on book #45....And I loved Wonder's Victory. It was one of my favorite...Ashleigh and Wonder have a perfect bond and it's about time they got to really use it! (In the race) I loved how Mr.Townsend gave Ashleigh half interest in Wonder and her foals...This book ended W*O*N*D*E*R-FUL!!

I love the thoroughbred series! I'm a big horse fan and these are the perfect books! Ashleigh has always been my favorite Character and Wonder is my favorite horse! I think Asheigh and Mike make a perfect couple. I was in tears when Charlie died. These books have inspired me to work with horses when i grow up! I hope to become a trainer for racehorses!

This book is the best book. I am currently reading Thoroughbred #27 and this is so far the best book of them all. Ashleigh has a lot of courage and so does Wonder. This book has a spectacular ending.

Wonder's Victory is an awsome book! especially if you have read all the Thoroughbred books before this one. It is about a horse loving girl who wants more than anyrthing for her horse Wonder to be a winner. If you luv horse racing or just horses this is the series for u!!!!!!!!!
