One of the best horse stories Anderson has done, and illustrated by his beautiful drawings. The big chestnut from Maryland has already made a name for himself when the story opens. In addition, he is the darling of his mistress, an attractive teen ager and fine horsewoman, and of Holley, stableman who has taught her all she knows about horses. Bobcat has one idiosyncrasy -- he cannot bear to have another horse ahead of him, a dangerous trait in steeplechasing. So his owner turns him to turf racing, and under clever handling he makes good. The story gives every thrilling detail, and those who love horses and love humans will find it a grand yarn.
