Told from the view of Assault, the horse, children will ride along with him as he races his way to fame. This is a delightful true account of the King Ranch “Triple Crown” champion race horse. Bob Kleberg of the famed ranch didn’t worry about the horse’s limp, but instead chose to see potential. This tale recaptures life in another era through the eyes of a noble horse who never gave up.
