Taking the ReinsWill Charismatic's tragedy cause Christina to give up her dreams of being a jockey?
Written by Jennifer Chu
Thoroughbred Series Created by Joanna Campbell
If you love horses, you'll love reading all the books in the Thoroughbred series. The series follows the exciting adventures of a new generation of thoroughbred horses and riders at Whitebrook Farm!
An accident causes Christina to reconsider veterinary medicine. Working with a horse that has Charismatic's bloodlines reminds Christina of Charismatic's story-how he unexpectedly won the Derby and the Preakness in 1999, only to go down in the Belmont with a broken leg. It would feel pretty great to Christina to help horses in similar situations, but how could she turn her back on Wonder's Star? While Christina is stuck making this big decision, Melanie is working on her own. Will she ride a horse for the very couple her cousin Christina holds responsible for her accident? For Melanie, her prospects as a jockey seem clear, but is the relationships with the people she loves-Christina, Jazz, and even Image worth the risk? How will Melanie prove to Christina that she puts the people she loves first?
