I have a question, 10 November 2003
Author: mjc-9

The way this movie was presented makes one think it is a true story as the players are real life. However, it is a far cry from the truth. His own story was remarkable - why distort it? Carl Crawford bought the young horse in Texas (he was double registered as a Thoroughbred and also as a Quarter Horse) and was the sole trainer. He was the only stallion ever allowed to play in the Internationals on Long Island. There was not one word of mention of Carl Crawford. Bob Skene has nothing to do with the training. Woody D (Stormy) was a fully finished (trained) horse the first time Bob Skene ever set foot on him.
