Joyce Stranger (Author). Zara is a racehorse mare in England and this tells of the work of training a horse and racing it, the hopes and hardships for the owners. Other horse tales by Stranger for adults/young adults are Khazan, Breed of Giants, the Stallion, The January Queen. While I enjoyed this book I preferred Vian Smith for genuine racehorse training stories - he did that himself. Try The Horses of Petrock or The Lord Mayor's Show.

Joyce Stranger gives colorful descriptions of the horses, a stud farm in the UK, and many interesting characters. Aug 20, 2015 Loz rated it really liked it. I do love a Joyce Stranger book, I grab them whenever I see them at the local church booksale. Apr 14, 2013 Lesley rated it it was amazing.

Richard Proud coveted the golden-brown mare from the moment he saw her. Although he couldn't afford Zara, he bought her nevertheless, hoping she would breed him winners - foals that would restore the fortune of the Yorkshire stud where he bred and trained racehorses. Zara was born a winner: she had to be raced. Richard was determined that she should race so - despite personal crises, caused by his reckless wife, by a snowstorm that isolated the stud only a few days before Zara was due to run, and by an accident to her jockey - he had to find a way to let Zara prove her ability.
