She's his last hope . . .
Ever since thirteen-year-old Melanie Graham was sent to live with her aunt Ashleigh and uncle Mike at Whitebrook Farm, she's struggled for a way to fit in. Everything she does is wrong. She doesn't get along with the cousin Christina and riding racehorses is nothing like riding back in New York.
Then she sees Pirate's Treasure. The powerful black stallion has incredible potential. But he's also unpredictable - and dangerous. Then he's retired from his racing career and turned out to pasture. Soon he begins to lose his will to live. Can Melanie break through Pirate's distrust and prove to everyone he has the heart of a champion?
Whether jumping a cross-country course, galloping a powerful racehorse, or just riding on the trails, only one thing matters to Christina and her friends: the special bond between horse and rider. If you love horses, then you'll love reading all the books in the Thoroughbred series.
