If you’re looking for a jump-racing movie this spring, you’ll want to consider Dark Horse, which opens Friday, May 6, in New York and Los Angeles before later distribution across the country.
Dark Horse is the real-life story of Dream Alliance, who indeed was the result of a dream alliance. He was bred by a barmaid in a hardscrabble former mining town in Wales and owned by bar patrons who pitched in £10 a week for his upkeep.
It’s an inspiring story of everyday people who love their horse, enjoy fairy-tale success, and then call upon modern veterinary medicine when disaster strikes. To watch the trailer of the Sony Pictures Classics film, go to: http://sonyclassics.com/darkhorse/#
