**THIS IS THE DRAFT VERSION AND MAY DIFFER DRAMATICALLY FROM THE FINAL COPY**
Like a fast Thoroughbred, she was born to run....
Alexandra Anderson is on the run from the law.
When the thirteen-year-old orphan can run no further, she collapses at the gates of the prestigious racing and breeding farm, North Oak. Horse racing strikes a deep chord in her. She hears a higher calling in the jingle jangle of bit and stirrup and in the thunder of hooves on the turn for home. It tells her she has a place in the world. But when the racing headlines find her on the front of every sports page, she realizes North Oak is no longer a safe haven.
Money can't buy love, but it just might secure Alex's future.
Will everyone at North Oak still want to offer her a home when they learn of her unspeakable crime?
On the heels of Joanna Campbell's beloved Thoroughbred Series, and Walter Farley's Black Stallion, comes a brand new young adult horse racing series that will sweep you away like a runaway Thoroughbred.
Joe brushed his hands off. "I get tired of watching other people's horses; tornadoes on toothpicks. No substance to em. Million dollar one hit wonders. Let me tell you the kind of horse I want to train. I want a horse with legs of steel that can run all day and blow by like a summer wind. Give me the colt that can outstay a mile and a quarter, or a filly with a heart bigger than any other colt on any given day, and I'll give you a champion. We're playing the same game here, you and I. It's called put the lightning in the bottle."
