Be prepared. This book has a lot of informatiion about Winx and the people associated with her, either directly or indirectly. What I loved about the story telling were all of the chapters about the races she won and the descriptions of her Jockey's feelings when they raced her. The story of how she was purchased and how she is trained and rested and insights to her personality were also the most interesting parts of this book. I often re-read certain chapters or paragraphs because I could feel through the writing how the characters were feeling. However, it is a long book and it does dig right in to history of sires, dams, and other champion horses in the world. Therefore if you love all things about horse racing and horses who race this will be a book for you as well. I skipped a lot of pages around that writing, but I re-read a lot about Winx and the people who care for and work with her.
