It was a good fun read. A bit far-fetched at times, but hey - it's fiction after all. ( )

One of my favorites in the series. This book takes you a bit away from the world of thoroughbred racing as Sierra is not performing on the flat. Samantha and her boyfriend Tor, train Sierra to be a steeplechase racer. When Tor is injured and Samantha has to ride the rebellious colt, will they win? I enjoy this book so much because you can see the maturity aging in Joanna Campbell's series and there is hints of romance in here along with great horsemanship. Amazing book! ( )

It's going to be another one of those workouts, Samantha McLean thought grimly as she rode Sierra onto the training oval at Whitebrook.

Now Samantha must ride Sierra in the most perilous race of her life - and make Sierra a winner!
