Hamilton Greer is a sixteen year old runaway from Vermont... He hops a Greyhound bus and flees a rocky home life as he seeks validation in a world he barely understands. Ending up on the backstretch of Saratoga Race Track in the summer of 1972 is the last place he expects to land, but it opens doors to the unique world of Thoroughbred racing as he follows the horses from track to track in the company of a sage named Willie. Sometimes light, sometimes dark, Hamilton's tastes of life begin to shape his sense of values through bittersweet victories and tearful losses...
