If you love a "feelgood" story then you'll want to watch this one. It gets off to slow start but stay with it as we all know how it ends so well. Jockey Calvin Borel is the star of the movie, other than the horse, of course, and he plays himself splendidly. And we get to see the footage of how he won the race by taking the small gelding on the inside rail from an aerial view, only a master jockey like Borel could have pulled that off. And I just LOVE Bob Baffert in the movie. He looks great, has shed 25 pounds and he makes me think that if he ever quit training he could make a run as a fashion designer or beautician. I am not certain who plays him in the movie but bravo. See Bob below with silver hair.
For those who would like to own a copy of the DVD, you can enter the giveaway and one lucky winner will have a DVD in their mailbox by Derby Day. We all know that Mine That Bird was the real thing. He won the Derby in amazing fashion and he went on to place second in the Preakness and third in Belmont. He won over $2M, not shabby earnings for a horse that cost less than half a million. So who beat him in the other Triple Crown races?
