I really enjoyed reading this story. I liked that the author wrote a talking horse into the story as I think that is very creative and overall made the story more exciting and magical. The setting of the story was also very unique, and the author did a great job of describing the different aspects of a racetrack such as the stables and different types of horses that live there. This was also shown through the colorful drawings that illustrated the different scenes at the racetrack. The horse's victory at the end of the story, despite being initially forced to be a workhorse by his owner, shows the importance of believing in yourself and never giving up on your dreams. Overall, I think this is a great story for young children that is full of inspiration!
