Book by Farley, Walter
  • Rereading The Black Stallion series as an adult, I find that it holds true to what I remember of it. The series as a whole, and most of the books as individuals, captures your heart and your imagination, and keeps you breathlessly waiting for more. The Black Stallion's Filly is no different. Here we meet Black Minx, a young filly out of The Black who ends up on the auction block. Henry Dailey wastes no time bringing her back into the Hopeful Farm pack. Though she's been spoiled and abused, and though she takes no interest in racing, Henry is sure that with her he can win the Derby. The Kentucky Derby, that is - a race that is made and meant for colts.

    This book takes us through the perilous journey of Black Minx's training into racing form, and through the racing scene as it is the year she is meant to run in the Derby. We follow each of her possible competitor's through their races, and we feel Henry and Alec's indecision as they get closer to choosing whether to run her in the Kentucky Oaks, a race for fillies, or the famed Kentucky Derby, a race dominated by colts.

    I loved the diversion of all the other races and race horses that are interspersed with Black Minx's story. We feel the passion that Henry and Alec have for the sport as never before. We've always understood that they love their horses, but now we see just how entrenched they are in this life. Farley shares with us the balance in their relationship and the hope that is truly a part of Hopeful Farm.

  • 'The Black Stallion's Filly' was/is a very special book for me. In truth, it was the very first book I ever ACTUALLY read. Family and teachers all tried to make me read with classic trappings like 'Treasure Island', 'Alice in Wonderland', 'Kidnapped', 'The Wizard of Oz', etc., but none of them at the time could hold my attention past a mere few pages. I was in the 5th or 6th grade when my mother, in response to repeated communications with my [tattling] teachers, took me to our local library and sternly announced that [#1] we would not be leaving until I had picked out a book, and [#2] I would be taking that book home and READING it from cover to cover, even if I had to read it to her. I don't know how long it took me to look through the countless books (well, the covers anyway), but one finally caught my eye. I took it off the self and looked at the book jacket picture with some wonder. At that moment a girl about my same age came up beside me and said that the Black Stallion books were her favorites. No, I never met her again, but I did take the book. For the first time the words became mental pictures that no modern movie could replicate -- and I fell in love -- with reading -- Walter Farly books. Since then I've managed to read all those other classics and many many more, but it was Mr. Farley's Black Stallion and Island Stallion books that opened that wonderful door for me. His stories are usually found among children's sections of stores and libraries; but now, 50 years later, almost by accident, I find my old friend 'The Black Stallion's Filly', and have fallen in love all over again.

  • This is a book in the Black Stallion series, but it is not about the Black. It is a story about his first filly. She was a spoiled rotten horse and not really wanted. Want to know how Henry and Alec turn her into a race horse, well read the book.
    Like all of Mr. Carey's book, this one is in a series but can be read as a stand alone. I just suggest you read them in order.

  • A tale of a simpler time and still a great horse story. Reread it during the week before the Kentucky Derby. It helped me to remember that the Derby is so much more than mint juleps and silly hats.

  • One of my favorite books of Walter Farley. As well as a personal favorite since I was a child. It still brings tears to my eyes. Any criticism would be that the Kindle version had several typos that spell check didn't pick up. As proof reading was part of my vocation, it's sad to see that good old fashioned editing is no longer utilized and the errors were glaringly obvious to me.

  • Description accurately described the product - I got what I expected.

  • Loved this story....the trainer figured out what made her tick and worked
    her problems out. Great book. The whole series were good.

  • As always the Black Stallion books
    Are a joy to read and this one is no exception. I would recommend it for young or old.
