Now that Lightning, the colt she raised from an orphan, is back, Ann Collins sees her chance to restore her family’s acclaimed position in horse racing. Many years ago, her grandfather nearly bankrupted Stormy Hill, the Collins family thoroughbred breeding farm. Ann’s well-bred black colt is now two years old, and in her eyes, has all the makings of a champion.
Ann tries to convince her father and their horse trainer, Scotty, that Lightning has what it takes to be a stakes winner. But before he can race, Lightning must overcome many obstacles, including finding a qualified rider. During the time the colt was stolen, he was mistreated by the men who took him. Now Lightning is afraid of all male riders and will only trust Ann on his back. Ann would love to be the one to ride Lightning to victory, but she lives at a time when women cannot be professional jockeys. She hopes that her friend, Ted, can ride the horse in the big race, one which no other Stormy Hill horse has ever won.
Will Ann be able to ensure Stormy Hill’s Legacy in the greatest proving ground of them all, the Kentucky Derby?
