Danielle is eager to follow Raven, who is now an official yearling, to South Wind, where he will begin serious training as a racehorse. Danielle's best friend, Julie, already has an after-school job at the state-of-the-art facility, and Danielle tries - unsuccessfully - to hide her growing jealousy. Danielle is determined to land a job at South Wind, too, but when her grades start to slip, her mother swiftly puts an end to that idea. Danielle doubles her efforts at school, but just as she's finally catching up on her studies, Raven suffers a baffling injury. Will Raven's entire racing career be over before it even gets started?
