Raja: The Story of a Racehorse by Anne Hambleton
by Anne Hambleton
Raja loves to win. After all, he is an elite racehorse - the best of the best and destined for greatness. When a series of bad luck events and his fear of lightning end his racing career, he finds himself pulled into the random world of "off the track thoroughbreds." Raja's odyssey takes him from the Kentucky Derby trail to the "A" show circuit; along the streets of New York City; to the horrors of the livestock auction; and to the stable of Paddy Murphy, a retired steeplechase jockey and his daughter, Dee. Will Raja finally find a chance to realize his destiny?
