About Star Gazer
Star Gazer's a beautiful horse, with a lovely white star on his forehead. He's also smart and loves to learn new things. Unfortunately, as a racing horse, none of these things matter. All that counts is winning races, and Star Gazer always comes in last. When his angry owner sells him, Star Gazer feels like a loser, but his life improves. Pulling a carriage of tourists through the streets of Philadelphia may be hard work, but he gets to learn all about US History and the Constitution and meets people from all over the world. He realizes how important world peace is, but how can a horse help? Even a horse that saves the President of the United States?
