"'What, girls in racing?' Henry Dailey, trainer of the Black Stallion, exploded at the though of girls competing against men in the sport he loved. 'They're dynamite,' he warned. 'Just because of their sex they create problems we wouldn't have otherwise. They get emotionally involved with their horses, everything. Racing is a rough business; it's not for girls.' Alec Ramsey, rider of the Black Stallion, had been taught to have respect for Henry's authority. Yet he found that he could not agree with Henry simply because the old man expected him to do so. One day, in desperate need of help at Hopeful Farm, Alec hired a girl named Pam to work for them. Little did he dream that she would be the catalyst who would rock his own world as well as Henry's and deeply involve the Black Stallion.
