I cried my way through this book!

Tricia Evanston kept thinking of her brothers words, "Just get through the ceremonies." She couldn't look at him, just left him support her as the cameras took pictures of Spitfire. The win was a family affair, Spitfire, bred and raised by Hal Evanston, was the winner of the Belmost Cup, but why was his son, David, accepting? Trisha said, "We did it, Dad," over the mike, as they left the Secret Service held back reporters. The limo took them to the hospital, Trisha was crying. Her father's voice seemed to say, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished my race." The family said their final goodbye to him as they left his hospital room. Trish's mother collapsed into her brother's arms & Trish tried to stop shaking. Even the nurses knew he was a fine man, even though he had only been at that hospital a short time. Spitfire was to be shipped to BlueMist Farms in Kentucky. What hope did she have?
