KIRKUS REVIEW

The animals are characters and the people are bores in this story of a potential Seabiscuit who'd rather play than race. Rick Ballou takes over a crippled thorough-bred colt, tends him lovingly until he loses his lameness, and then has to decide whether to keep him as a pet or let him fulfill his heritage by racing. Rick makes the hard choice but the horse has other ideas: like Ferdinand, he just has no competitive spirit. Smart horse, trite book.
