LUCK OF THE DRAW is the story of Lucky, one of the slowest racehorses the world has ever kwn. Even though Lucky gives racing his all, he never manages to win a race, and soon finds himself working as a jumper and dressage horse. No matter how hard he tries, Lucky seems to fail at all disciplines. Despite his lack of success, Lucky remains upbeat and hopeful. He is determined to find his life's purpose, and eventually learns that succeeding in life doesn't always involve winning trophies and ribbons.
