Alex is almost fifteen, and convinced she's ready to train for jockeyhood. Only one man stands in her way: North Oak's gruff old trainer, Joe Hendricks. Joe doesn't think Alex can handle the demands of being a real rider-- she's reckless, doesn't follow instructions, and not exactly humble. Dejado Augustun, on the other hand, is already licensed to ride, does as he's asked, and does it well. He drives Alex nuts. No way can this Dejado guy be a match for Promenade in the upcoming Breeders Cup Juvenile. It would be easier to hate him if he weren't so darn nice. Worst of all for Alex, he likes her, and Promenade likes him. Can Alex overcome her pride and realize she may not be the rider Promenade needs? **
