The Black Stallion Challenged

Our rating: ***

The Black has recovered from his foot, er, hoof injury sufficiently to begin training for racing again. Things are all set for the Black until Alec receives a letter from Steve Duncan asking for his help in getting Flame into the race, too. The Black and Flame finally have an opportunity to race against each other! Which one really is the fastest?

Yes! Believe it or not, Walter Farley finally does say which horse is better. He avoids it for the entire series, but he seemed to have written himself into a corner. But I think it’s one of the better of the series.
