INCLUDED ON THE KENTUCKY DERBY MUSEUM'S RECOMMENDED READING LIST

Little Freddie is a foal with big dreams. Not every horse gets to run in the Kentucky Derby, and even then, only one winner is awarded with the coveted blanket of red roses.
He realizes that winning the race will take more than just the right speed, a good jockey, and long hours of training. It is Little Freddie's courage and fierce determination that will make him the best racehorse in the world.
Join this promising Thoroughbred on his adventures from his first days in the pasture to the excitement of Churchill Downs, the home of the Kentucky Derby. Share in Freddie's failures and triumphs as he discovers what it takes to win the race.
Kathryn Cocquyt is also the author of Pelican's Little Freddie's Legacy. She loves the track and enjoys riding and competing hunters at Fieldstone Riding Club in Moorpark, California.
