The Homestretch - Part 1
Finally! I am no longer an apprentice jockey and was hoping i could get some major wins done in my life. I had just called my jockey agent, Abby, to see if she could get me on Golden Jet in the breeder's cup. I waited and waited and finally my phone rang! Abby said, "The trainer said he would love for you to ride Golden Jet in the Breeder's cup! He also would like you to ride in the first race on Golden Jet tomorrow!"
I was happy to hear the good news and was already excited to race tomorrow. I went into the barn to see Golden Jet dozing away and noticed that he looked as if he just was about to wake up. He seemed to sense me and woke up. "I have a carrot for you," I told him. As if to agree with me, he stomped his hooves and neighed. He was happy and content and one of barn kittens seemed to be good friends with him. I could not wait until tomorrow.
