“A delightful story well told—and, like so many good stories, it begins with a dream” (Seattle Times). DARK HORSE is set in a former mining village in Wales, It’s 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. “While the underdog element of this tale is emotionally gratifying, it’s the humanity on unadorned display here that will move you beyond words”—Austin Chronicle. PG. 85 Min.
