(La Crete, Alberta, Canada)
Fifteen-year-old Leslie can have any horse she wants; her parents own stables where they train retired Thoroughbred racers to become pleasure horses. But the only horse Leslie wants is Battlecry, a racer everyone else has given up on. "He's wild... untrainable," they tell her.
Leslie knows Battlecry is so much more than that. Beneath his unpredictable behavior is a spirited horse that would give his all to win races again- for Leslie.
Finally Leslie's parents give Battlecry a chance to prove his worth. Leslie doesn't know that entering him in a race, she'll risk losing him forever...
