In Race Horses, young students will have a thrilling adventure as they discover the exciting world of racing. Written in a narrative style that profiles champion horses in action, Race Horses introduces kids to the long history of the sport of kings. They’ll read about the different competitive horse races held around the world, and learn how different breeds are trained to become champions of the race track. Along the way, kids will meet such famous champion horses as Secretariat and Man o’ War, as well as the jockeys who ride them. Kids also will encounter the sport’s dangerous side, so tragically illustrated by the disaster that befell Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro in the 2006 Preakness Stakes.
