Inhaltsangabe: Poised on the edge of her seat, fourteen-year-old Robin, can't wait for the race to begin. When the starting gun finally goes off, all the horses except one leap forward. As usual, Robin's beautiful Arabian horse, Sonoma King, hangs back at the gate, stubbornly refusing to run. Tears spring to Robin's eyes, and she wonders whether King will ever run well, much less win.
Robin knows that as a weak foal and a temperamental colt Sonoma King has already overcome many challenges, but will his luck continue? Will she be able to coax King out of the starting gate and into the winner s circle, much less stop a rival trainer s attempts to sabotage Sonoma King? With many difficult decisions to make, Robin knows that she must proceed with caution.
