“Rocket the Race Horse”: a story that teaches young readers to believe in themselves. “Rocket the Race Horse” is the creation of published author, Mark Albertus. Mark lives in Northern Wisconsin. He restores vintage cars and motorcycles. He also enjoys living in the Great North Woods. “Rocket the Race Horse” started out as a bedtime story he told his daughter on a nightly basis. He wanted to preserve the story, so young children could use it for entertainment and inspiration.

“Rocket grew up with the rest of the colts in the corral and learned to play the games little horses play. They would run from one end of the corral to the other and run in circles, then they would jump and buck like some of the bigger horses did when one of the workers would try to ride them. Always, Rocket would come in last; try as he might, he could never win.” --Mark Albertus

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Mark Albertus’s new book is the story of a little horse that never quit. A wobbly-kneed little horse named Rocket was born one day in a large Southern Kentucky corral. His father was a race horse, so his mother knew he would grow up to become one too. Rocket did not believe he could become a racer, but his mother tells him that she will love him no matter what he does. Rocket eventually gets a chance to become a race horse. In the end, he will prove to himself and the world that he is capable of achieving anything.
