RED TARTAR by Page Cooper


Email this review


Hoofbeats-and-last-laps give full rein to excitement in the story of Randolph Courtney, orphaned grandson of Colonel Courtney, the fragile old man who has had to sell Laurel Hill, the old family homestead near Charlottesville, Vs., in the Monticello country. Red Tartar, last of the Courtney studs, carries Courtney hopes for the future with him in the crucial meet. Outwitting rival sadist, Paul Gerhardt, and helping Paul's sister, Sue Ann, to attain self-confidence, Randy sees Red Tartar finish first in the $175,000 race. Another teen-aged center with the author in full control of his literary mount.
