Award Winning Horse Racing Documentary DARK HORSE Gallops into the Digital Gym Cinema!

Pin It

Director: Louise Osmond

Tagline:  WINNER Audience Award at Sundance Film Festival! A barmaid in a poor Welsh mining village convinces some of her fellow residents to pool their resources to compete in the “sport of kings” with a racehorse they would breed and raise.

 

Synopsis:  Set in a former mining village in Wales, DARK HORSE is the inspirational true story of a group of friends from a working men’s club who decide to take on the elite ‘sport of kings’ and breed themselves a racehorse. Raised on a slagheap allotment, their foal grows into an unlikely champion, beating the finest thoroughbreds in the land, before suffering a near fatal accident. Nursed back to health by the love of his owners – for whom he’s become a source of inspiration and hope – he makes a remarkable recovery, returning to the track for a heart-stopping comeback.
