The Last Ditch
K. M. Peyton (Author)
DescriptionJonathan Meredith's life is a disaster. All because of a Greek vacation and Iris, the girl who has brought his world--parents, school, society--tumbling down. Jonathan seeks refuge with his friend Peter McNair, a hopeful jockey, who earns a living exercising horses. Peter has ambitions for a horse stabled where he works. Dogwood is a difficult horse but he's been entered for the National. The hopes of Peter and Jonathan become centered on their horse and its chances. University, career, family are forgotten: only the race matters, and just to get round seems almost impossible.
