Racing Stripes is a heartwarming story about a zebra that is rescued by a farmer and his daughter after the circus abandons him. The zebra finds his new home at the farm and thinks he is like all the other horses. The farmer's daughter, Channing and the barnyard animals become friends with Stripes. Stripes learns that he has a heart for racing and begins a competition with neighboring race horses. The neighboring thoroughbreds do not let him forget that he comes form the wrong side of the fence.....that he's different because of his stripes. The biggest horse race of the year, the Kentucky Derby, is fast approaching and Stripes along with the help of his friends begin to train. Together they face the race of their lives. Stripes' determination to be a winner brings life back to the farm and rekindles tragic memories of the past. Now it's up to Stripes to show the world that it's alright to be different. Will it be a photo finish for Stripes and Channing? I'll let you read the book to find the answer.

The tiny hooves barely make a sound against the track. They are drowned out by bigger, bolder throughbred hooves. A tiny zebra comes up face to face with the leading thoroughbred. they race under the wire together. It's a photo finish, ladies and gentlemen! And the winner is...STRIPES, the oddball zebra from a little farm in Kentucky!

Channing's father wasn't thinking about winning races as he scooped up the little bundle. He lifted the zebra into his truck and drove home. channing ran out to find out what happened. And a legend was soon sucking greedily on a warm bottle of milk.

Stripes grew bigger every day. He hung out with a shetland pony and a white show jumping mare, as well as various other interesting creatures, such as Snoop Dogg, who doesn't have ,much of a role but everybody loves him anyways ;).

Stripes makes his way as an underdogg, err, underdog and gets to the top soon enough. he enters as the longshot, making his supporters rich!!!when he wins!

This heartwarming story is like a child-version of seabiscuit. Both books have a message: The shape and size will; never, ever count-it's the heart that matters most. ;)
