Penguin presents the audio download edition of The Racehorse Who Disappeared written and read by Clare Balding.
Life is slowly getting back to normal for Charlie after her reluctant racehorse, Noble Warrior, won the Derby and saved her family from financial ruin.

Funny and touching
There are useful human life lessons here: create a team, Balding urges, delegate, do your research, believe in yourself, and magic ensues
