This book was okay. It is about a race horse who is stolen and carted off to Mexico. His owner Jess is chasing behind to get his horse back. Jess meets a man who is trying to help him retrieve Breathtaker. Jess eventually gets the horse back and races him. The horse is then retired to stud. It kind of reminded me of The Black Stallion books. This book is only 187 pages, so if you like a good short horse story, this is the story for you.
