An idealistic young man trains a workhorse to race in this classic horse story from Newbery Award–winning author Marguerite Henry, now available in a collectible hardcover gift edition.

Each year since medieval times, the Palio horse race is held in Siena, Italy. Giorgio Terni is a starry-eyed young man who dreams of becoming a horse trainer and riding in the Palio.

Giorgio forges a relationship with a beautiful mare named Gaudenzia, and no one believes she will ever be anything more than a workhorse. But, Giorgio senses something great in her, and he’s determined to teach the mare to trust people again—and to become a winning racehorse.

This classic equestrian tale from Newbery Award–winning author Marguerite Henry features the original text and illustrations in a gorgeous collectible hardcover edition.
