    Every summer in the ancient hill town of Siena, Italy, one of the most exciting and dangerous horse races in the world takes place. It is the Palio.

    Giorgio Terni wants to enter the race and win, but he's from a poor family and may never have the chance. Then he meets Gaudenzia, a beautiful half-Arabian mare that has been hurt in one of the wild races. Can Giorgio nurse the mare back to health? Can they ride to victory in the Palio? And what will happen the following year, when Giorgio must compete against his beloved Gaudenzia?

    How Giorgio wins the title "Vittorino" and how Gaudenzia becomes the pride of the Palio is a story that will enthrall readers of all ages.
