My Sweet Victory - Part 10 - The End   10th May 2012   •   1135 views
My Sweet Victory - Part 10 - The End I rode Victory out onto the race track. I was wearing my new jockey silks and Victory was in his smart white bridle and racing saddle. The time had come. The vet had given us the all clear and Victory was dancing across the track in excitement. I gave a firm pull on the rains, “No boy,” Deep down, I was just as excited as he was, but I had to keep calm or Vi . . .

My Sweet Victory - Part 9 Warm sunlight filtered through my faded lilac curtains as the sun crept into the sky. Today was the day. Today was my race. I leapt out of bed, ran to the curtains and tore them open madly. I was met by a warm, glowing sun, blue skies all around and not a single cloud in sight. The breeze that blew in through the open window was cool; perfect conditions for . . .
 
My Sweet Victory - Part 8   1st May 2012   •   857 views
My Sweet Victory - Part 8 The rain attacked me as I struggled through the storm to the barn. Before stepping inside into the warmth, I glanced up at the angry, gray sky. Will the race still be on tomorrow I wondered. I quickly stepped into the barn to be out of the cold. Two weeks had gone quickly and now it was nearly time. I couldn’t believe it, my first race! I strolled along t . . .

My Sweet Victory - Part 7 Upon my mom’s call, I and Victory rocketed forward into a fast gallop. I was wearing my new silks and Victory, well. Victory was just in his usual tack. The world seemed a blur when I was up here; I urged Victory on and checked my goggles were on tightly. I could hear his hooves pounding against the dusty track and I was glad my goggles were on properly as t . . .

My Sweet Victory - Part 6 When I entered the store, I was overpowered by colors. It was like a rainbow had been crammed into the tiny store. Red silks, blue silks, purple silks, purple and yellow silks, green and white spotty silks; I didn’t know where to look first! “Hello,” A squeaky voice came from the back of the store and a tiny woman stepped out, “Here to buy silks?” she asked . . .
 
My Sweet Victory - Part 5   18th Apr 2012   •   887 views
My Sweet Victory - Part 5 “Come on boy,” I led Victory out of his stall. He had been living here at Blue Creek for about a week now; he should’ve settled. He looked great all tacked up and immaculately groomed. I couldn’t wait to ride him! I led him up to the block and stepped onto it. Boy, he looked big from up here. I slowly mounted Victory and noticed my mom watching. I smiled, . . .
 
My Sweet Victory - Part 4   15th Apr 2012   •   1032 views
My Sweet Victory - Part 4 The next morning I woke up at the crack of dawn. Victory was coming today. I had prepared his stall last night, the nearest one to the door, and had hidden a few treats in his feed bucket, ready for his arrival. I couldn’t wait to see that cheeky little Thoroughbred again! But this time, he would be mine. I quickly got dressed into my riding pants, polo s . . .
 
My Sweet Victory - Part 3   11th Apr 2012   •   1095 views
My Sweet Victory - Part 3 I barely moved from my bed for the whole day. I felt terrible. I had killed my own trainer. I still couldn’t get over the thought that I’d never see him again. My mom had said that as I’d crashed into him, he’d been slammed against the wooden fence and had broken his spine. Within an hour, he passed away in hospital. I didn’t know how I was going to ride aga . . .
