From the Book jacket: "If I only knew someone who would give him a good home." The owner of a fine horse, just crippled on the track, made the remark and Peter overheard him. Peter was ten and his father had taken him to his first race at Saratoga. He had always loved horses-Mohawk's owner could tell that from the way he acted. Could he take the horse? His father said he could, so a few days later Mohawk came home. Happy, busy days followed for both Peter and Mohawk, for no horse ever received more tender care. He grew strong and lively too. And when another year came around, he ran again and won $500. Perhaps you can guess what Peter did with his money. ... He bought a yearling, and, most exciting of all, Salute was a grandson of the great Man o' War.
