by Ruth S. Magadini
The gamble isn’t restricted to the racetrack when it comes to horses. The owners take a gamble themselves – sometimes in more ways than one.
Nick Bianchi leads a perfect life: He has a fulfilling career, a loving wife, and healthy children. However, a lucky day at the track ends with his buying a racehorse – one who proves to be true to his name: Showdown.
This spur-of-the-moment decision does more than stretch the already-tight family budget, his unlikely career as a racing owner propels him further into unfamiliar terrain, one which tests his skills and knowledge and threatens everything he holds dear. As emotions strain between Nick and his wife, his life becomes one big showdown: on the track, with his colleagues, and in his once-happy home.
Every showdown has a winner and loser…will Nick Bianchi come out on top? Or will he lose it all?
