    November 1958, New York. Into the rarefied atmosphere of wealth and tradition at the National Horse Show in Madison Square Garden comes the most unlikely of horses—a drab white former plow horse named Snowman—and his rider, Harry de Leyer. They were the longest of all longshots—and their win was the stuff of legend.

    Any additional comments?

    I loved the narrator, who was terrific. Just wish the author had been a bit more concise in her storytelling. She rehashed WAY too many things, repeatedly telling the background on particular items, taking away from the actual story of SNOWMAN, who was a brilliant horse. Background is good, but I felt there was more of that than the actual story itself.
