Synopsis:
"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.

Absolutely terrific. - Dark Horse review by DW

This is a documentary, thankfully without a poncey presenter hogging the limelight. Instead, the very personable "talking heads" are some of the ordinary people who were fortunate enough to "ride" this wonderful roller-coaster journey. Top class home entertainment.

Television documentary - Dark Horse review by JT

Was disappointed with the film, as I had been tempted with the trailer. Was not expecting a television-style documentary. The storyline had great potential but did not like the style of film at all.

Very entertaining true story and an emotional roller coaster. Well worth watching even if you are not a riding or horsey fan.
