Horses and booze don't mix
30 June 2001 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Drunk/bum/loser, Frank Butler, re-unites with his teen-age daughter, Jo, whom he hasn't seen in years. Jo has just lost her mother so Frank takes her under his wing and introduces her to the horse racing circuit which hasn't treated Frank kindly over the past few years. As Frank eases his way back into the equine fraternity he finds things aren't going to go to good for him because of a scandal he was involved in some years ago. Finally, he and Jo manage to pick up a horse of their own and enter him in a race, but tragedy strikes again just before the big event which leaves Jo all by herself with a heavy burden. I enjoyed this film, but it was no big shakes: it's been done before in other guises.
