Description

Avarice, deceit, and lawlessness are the bedrock of Beautiful Horseflesh, a literary fiction debut set in 1999. When a Thoroughbred filly, Bumble B, arrives at the Smitt family’s boarding and water walk farm in Florida, she is hailed by teen Luis Smitt as “a beautiful piece of horseflesh.” Black as satin, she is as speedy as she is beautiful, but comes to the farm shrouded by a dark cloud of calamity.

Her handsome trainer, Bud, insists on strict privacy in preparing the horse for Tampa’s upcoming high-stakes race, yet finds time to flirt with both Luis's mother and sixteen-year-old sister. As Luis unwraps the layers of the horse’s mysteries, his family’s life is irrevocably changed. The race’s starting bell pulls the Smitt family into the deception, and, for better or worse, they will forever be impacted by Bumble B. Readers of dramatic fiction—teens and adults alike—will enjoy following this tale as it gallops around the track.
