The horse, Capitan, sent a shiver down Olivia Palmer's back when she first saw him. Olivia was planning to buy a racehorse. In a single flash she knew that Capitan was the one she must have. He had presence. Taller than the other animals in the paddock, he stood out from them, commanding attention by stance and expression as well as by size. Olivia did not then know it, but she had set her heart upon an animal of such spirit that it would fight to win against any odds.
