This sequel to the 1944 Elizabeth Taylor film National Velvet focuses on Sarah Brown, a young, recently orphaned American girl sent to England to live with her aunt - a now grown Velvet Brown. The troubled Sarah is only interested in one thing; horses, and has clearly inherited her aunt's talent. She and her horse Arizona Pie (son of Velvet's Grand National winning stead The Pie) work their way up through the world of eventing, finally being selected for the British Olympic Squad, growing up and finding love along the way.

When the horses are being loaded onto and unloaded off the aircraft, the engine covers are clearly displayed. These are only used when an aircraft is parked overnight, or stored out of service. They would certainly be removed long before flight (the crew are shown going through pre-start checks), and not placed back over the engines immediately after landing (they were visible as the "passengers" were getting off the aircraft).

I have read a comment from another person who comments upon the lack of ethnic inclusion. This film is based in the very early years when ethnic minorities were not even considered, therefore I really don't think ethnic status is that relevant. It also may be seen as dull by todays standards but it is a classic which cannot be repeated no matter who takes the lead role. Yes it is a film where everyone is perfect and by some peoples standards a little cheesy but my advice would be: if you don't like it don't watch it. For families where horses are a part of life then this film makes a change from the violence etc on the TV now. The thing which I find can have the most effect is that the moral of the story is that you shouldn't give up when the odds are stacked against you - a prime example of life which most children should learn.
