GOING TO THE LAST: Stories of Horses and Racing by K.D. Knight
“Twenty-three original and engaging short stories
about horses and racing.”
by K.D. Knight
Recently, I received a message from across the pond from K.D. Knight. A prolific writer, Knight presents “Going To The Last” a stunning collection of short stories about horses.
Knight takes you on a journey behind the scenes, into the worlds of jockeys, horse owners, those who place bets, horse-magic, horse racing, and much more! Every story has a slight twist, always with a horse at the focal point.
Characters are engaging and endearing; gamblers spout “sometimes we get the luck we deserve”; horse owners set out to make “every post a winning post”; horsemen repeat “it’s easier to stop a horse than to get it go faster”; while the man in the stands knows that “front runners fade”. With a myriad of characters, each one promotes their own form of horse-drama.
I truly enjoyed reading Knight’s collection of horse stories and will keep as a favorite. Recommended reading for horse-lovers and those looking for a great read.
