Bonfire, the Black Stallion’s colt who is a champion harness racer, is in training for the biggest race of his career: the Hambletonian. But a routine practice race turns disastrous in a collision of wood, metal, horses, and jockeys. Bonfire escapes unharmed, but is spooked and refuses to race. Alec Ramsey, the owner of the Black, witnesses the crash and is determined to see that Bonfire follow in the winning footsteps of his world-famous sire.read more
Old men. This book is mostly about old men. Also horses, of course, and racing. But the heart of it is the old men who know the way things are done, and old men in opposition to one another, and old men trying to help young men despite the young men being kinda jerks. I love Henry Dailey, the irascible old git. The moment when Si takes his teeth out is pure gold. And of course Bonfire is a dream colt. Alec's not perfect here, and he learns some things- though I'm not sure I've ever met a young man so humble and ready to be steered. As always, pulse-pounding race scenes.read more
