Narrator Dan McGowan's presentation is lighthearted and optimistic as Triple Crown winner Smarty Jones tells his remarkable story in this motivational audiobook. After a serious accident, the horse's racing career is nearly destroyed, but his team and his strong will prove otherwise. McGowan delightfully delivers Smarty's "voice" and those of everyone involved as he wins race after race. Impressive sound effects like neighing and clopping hooves add to the feeling of being on the scene. Listeners will learn all about the life of a horse, as well as the animal's place in history, literature, art, and even jokes. McGowan keeps it light even when he reports that Smarty is now retired.
