Etta's life is transformed when she finds a horribly mutilated filly wandering in the woods.She names herMrs Wilkinson and nurses her back to health. The filly charms everyone in the village, and whentests reveal her to be a spectacularly well-bred racehorse a village syndicate is formed to put the filly into training.Captivating vast crowds as she progresses from point-to-point to major races, she brings fame and fortune to the syndicate, until, at last, she is entered in the greatest jump race of them all.Can Mrs Wilkinson win the Grand National? And can Etta gain her heart's desire?
