Film Synopsis

The true story of an undersized Depression-era racehorse whose victories lifted not only the spirits of the team behind it but also those of their nation.

Charles Howard (Jeff Bridges), an entrepreneur who owns the unlikely racehorse, teams with partially blind boxer-turned-jockey Red Pollard (Tobey Maguire) and horse trainer Tom Smith (Chris Cooper). Together, the three work to help the famed horse to several symbolic victories that helped to inspire a downtrodden 1930s America.
