    Om My Year of the Racehorse

    Kevin Chong has grand plans. He draws up a to-do list of major milestones that will give him the life he always wantedand the life that will inspire awe and envy in his friends. Things like settling down and starting a family; learning a foreign language; getting a tattoo. But these grand plans go out the window when Chong makes an unconventional decision: he's going to buy a racehorse. Not the whole thinghe'll become partowner of the horse. Just don't ask him which part.Thus Chong meets Blackie, the racehorse that will win his heart, even if she doesn't always win on the track. He meets Randi, the cantankerous and foul-mouthed horse trainer with a heart of gold.

It is strewn with fascinating tidbits about the history and tradition of this
