Has Cindy given up hope?

While recovering from surgery, Cindy McLean goes back and reads what she wrote in her diary so many years ago. Cindy is sure her racing career is over now, but years ago, it was just beginning....

Find out what happened in Cindy's own words as she travels to Arabian shores — the ancient birthplace of the horse — to work for Sheik al Rihani. There she learns that women are treated differently, especially women who want to race against men. But the more challenges she faces, the more determined Cindy becomes.

Will the injured Cindy find inspiration in her spirited younger self?
