The Heart Of A Champion (Summary)
by Maggie M
Picture from the movie Ruffian, to whom this story is.....
Inspired by a true story
Her name was American Dream. She was a gorgeous black thoroughbred filly. She seemed as unstoppable as a forest fire. But fire must die out eventually.
She won so many times that she was running out of competition. One source said that no horse could run with her. As it turns out, there was another competitor out there. Another horse with a perfect record. Not a filly, a colt. His name was Final Stretch. He looked like an outside linebacker, quick and athletic, with muscles in his eyebrows. He was shaping up as the best two year old colt in the counry.
Will American Dream rise to the challenge? Or will a tragic accident force her to give up the one thing she loves?
In loving memory of Ruffian.
