This was a wonderful book. I just love horse books and although I had seen this type of racing before I knew nothing about pacer horses. It was so fascinating reading and learning about it. I loved it all. I always find it so interesting reading about horses that are bought for a smaller amount of money then they become a star. The author wrote this book so well and it flowed so well I became totally engrossed in the story. I especially loved all the pictures in this book it really added to the great atmosphere. I just had to read this book in one sitting I even had to switch to text to speech when I went shopping lol. It was brilliant how many awards the horse won and how it was loved by all Canadians. I found it fascinating learning about the differences between this type of racing verses thoroughbred racing.

I definitely recommend this book to all horse fans out there especially those like me know know nothing about this type of racing. I'm sure you will love it just as much as I did.


So much praise goes out to the author and publishers for bringing us this wonderful and exciting story of a fantastic horse.

This was a good read and learned a lot about harness racing. I just wish I'd heard about this horse a long time ago. The book made me interested in following this type of racing. I know a lot more about TB racing.

Thank you to the author, publisher and NetGalley for my eARC in exchange for an honest review.

This a modern day version of Seabiscuit only this horse is involved in harness racing and mostly focused in Canada. As the description shows this is the story of a harness racing horse named Somebeachsomewhere and the 6 person stable of individuals who came together to purchase a higher priced horse to race. Realistically this grouped hope they may have a horse that maybe they broke even or made a little money but nothing serious. But these folks ended up with the lottery winner and one of the most famous horse's in Harness racing history. Even if you are a novice like myself this is an entertaining read and if you do not know the history of this horse you find yourself pulling for him on every race. Not only is this exciting this really informational . Thank you to Netgalley and Nimbus Publishing for an ARC for a fair and honest review.

Loved this book. It’s always a pleasure to read about the owner’s devotion to an athlete. Having adopted harness horses this book touched a special part of my heart.
