Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0571224350, Hardcover)Smiley draws upon her first-hand knowledge of horses, as well as the wisdom of trainers, vets, jockeys and even a real-life horse whisperer, to reveal the horse on all levels - practical, theoretical and emotional. To this she adds drama and suspense as two of her own horses begin their careers at the racetrack. As Waterwheel and Wowie aspire to the winner's circle, we are enchanted and enthralled by what it's really like to own, train and root for a thoroughbred.
