Matt Armstrong

Canadian author, of whom I have very little information. He wrote one horse story aimed mainly at teenage boys, in the harness racing genre. This was originally a short magazine story but expanded to form a full length novel which was published in the USA. Unfortunately the book is very hard to find and can be expensive. I do not have a pic of the book so if anyone could oblige I would be very grateful.
