Gail Ruffu was once a respected racehorse trainer known for her unconventional training methods. Then she became part owner of the Thoroughbred called Urgent Envoy, and everything changed. Her co-owners pushed her to speed up Urgent Envoy's training and eventually made her race him too early, until he developed a shin fracture.

One more race would kill him. But nobody heeded her warning. Gail had to act.

So on Christmas Eve, Gail stole her own horse. A modern-day outlaw, she lived out of her truck in order to move the horse to safe havens. She evaded private investigators and learned the law at night to take on a powerful Los Angeles attorney determined to crush her in court. As she stood up for the humane treatment of racehorses, she also faced down the system that could ruin them.

In this gorgeous graphic novel for young readers, G. Neri, author of the acclaimed Yummy and Tru & Nelle, retells the life of his cousin Gail, a pioneer who challenged the horse racing world for the sake of one extraordinary horse. With illustrations by brilliant newcomer Corban Wilkin, it is a must-read for horse lovers everywhere.
