From the Publisher

For a nation recovering from years of war, a little chestnut colt named Assault gave people hope and inspiration as he beat the odds to become the 1946 Triple Crown winner.

Born in the midst of World War II, the aptly named Assault showed the same courage and fortitude as the American servicemen fighting overseas. As a baby, Assault injured his foot so severely that he was almost destroyed. But Assault managed to recover, and although he forever walked with a limp, when he ran, no trace of his injury existed. Instead he flew with speed and grace, earning the nickname “the clubfooted comet.”

Raised on the vast expanse of King Ranch in South Texas, Assault became the pride and joy of the Lone Star State with his racing heroics. Author Eva Jolene Boyd, a native Texan, remembers seeing Assault at King Ranch when she was young, and she proudly tells the story of this courageous legend.
