He becomes caught up in the exciting atmosphere of trainers and grooms behind the scenes and wonders what it would be like to be a silk-clad jockey himself. While working at a local stable to gain experience, he is drawn into a dramatic series of events surrounding his mentor and two young stable hands. David soon enters his first race, in which he and his own pony, Blue, run valiantly against the odds. Enhanced with beautiful full-color photographs, Racing For Keeneland is the heartwarming story of a young boy who works hard to make a dream come true.
