Synopsis

Kathryn Cocquyts character, the racehorse Little Freddie, certainly became a legend in her first childrens book. The anticipated success of Cocquyts second title about his successor and daughter is closing in on his popularity. In the new book, Little Freddies Legacy, Freddie has just returned to the pastures of his parents a proud Kentucky Derby victor. He soon realizes that there is more to life than races as he falls in love with the beautiful blind mare Rosie and sires his first foal, a filly named Baroness. As Freddies daughter she is destined to continue in his racing legacy. But early on she suffers an emotional defeat. At the Keeneland horse auction, she fails to impress a buyer on her first showing. The experience is one she is hard-pressed to forget and causes her to lack self-confidence. Baroness learns to face a number of challenges when she is bought by a young girl and taken to Ireland. Young Tiffany teaches Baroness through compassion by training her to run with the reins, not with a whip. With the help of her young owner, the foal of a Derby winner becomes what she has always dreamed of beinga championship-grade racehorse.

The moment of glory comes as Baroness climbs the ranks of the Irish racing circuit to compete in the acclaimed race, the Oaks. Still fighting her lack of confidence, injuries, and the fierce competition of the Emerald Isles biggest horse race, Baroness learns that the price of being a legacy is far greater than just living up to a name. Little Freddies Legacy is a fun and exciting adventure story. It teaches children how to achieve their dreams and gain self-confidence through hard work and patience. The first-place finishes and last-place realities are positive examples of overcoming difficulties.
