Synopsis

Inspired by Walter Farley’s best selling novels, this spirited adventure series revolves around a wild Arabian stallion-turned-racehorse named the “Black” and the only one who can ride him, young Alec Ramsey. In this complete second season, Alec and the Black face a distractingly beautiful opponent and her mysterious racehorse, a group of jockeys whose practical jokes go too far, and an Arabian horse that bears an uncanny resemblance to the Black. Plus, see what happens when Alec is stuck with amnesia after a fall, the Black is put up for auction, and the duo find themselves in a ghost town at the mercy of a delusional man with nefarious plans for the Black’s future…
