Before Thoroughbred, Ashleigh Griffen lived at Edgardale, her family's farm in Kentucky. Nothing could be more perfect than life on the farm with her family, her favourite horses, and her best friend, Mona. Ashleigh loves helping with the horses - and dreaming of becoming a jockey some day . . .
Will Ashleigh ever see Shadow again?
Ashleigh Griffen has a special place in her heart for Shadow, the filly she watched being born. So when Shadow disappears from Edgardale, Ashleigh is devastated. Shadow is only a couple of months old - how will she survive? Ashleigh's parents search for days, but eventually give up hope. Ashleigh can't bear knowing that Shadow is out there somewhere. Even when she gets the chance to work at Keeneland racetrack - a dream come true - all she can think of is the missing filly. Will she have to say good-bye to a horse she loves, or will she find Shadow before it's too late?
