Racin' Jason is an uplifting tale of one orphan boy's unwavering faith in the abandoned Appaloosa colt that he raises and transforms into a racehorse. Jason develops a special bond with the colt that he names Binesi, or Thunderbird, for the noise his hooves will one day make when he gallops by the other horses. Jason enters Binesi in the annual Cochin horse races and the colt lives up to his name. No longer can Jason's schoolmates call him "Racin' Jason" in jest.
