Summary, etc.:
"Zippy Chippy is descended from the leading legends of horse racing. He is destined for greatness and glory. But . . . when the starting bell rings, it's anybody's guess what Zippy will do. Will Zippy go for a gentle trot around the track or stop and smell the roses? Or, perhaps, never even leave the starting gate?! What's an owner to do? Try and try again! After all, he believes in Zippy- and, besides, the horse is now a part of the family. But as Zippy's losses mount, a funny thing happens. People take notice of the hapless, cupcake-loving horse. Could it be that they're betting on Zippy to win?"-- Provided by publisher.
