How would a small, stumbling colt with the tough name of Assault tell his own story of courage and victory?Before 1946, only one man saw promise in that chestnut colt. Assault, as a very young colt, had suffered serious injury to his right front foot. Bob Kleberg of Texas' famed King Ranch looked past Assault's limp and saw potential for race-worthy speed.
More importantly, he recognized the horse's heart and courage, which would be tested throughout his problem-plagued career...
'Assault, The Cripled Champion' recaptures life in another era through the eyes of a noble horse who never gave up.
Illustrated by Charles Shaw. Larger sized print.
