Storyline

Maud Sage has a secret wish when she returns to the place of her childhood. Her dream is to breed thoroughbreds of world class but it does not go so easily fulfilled. The snobbish society of bluegrass and her unscrupulous neighbor Lowell Shipleigh spares no meanness in order to destroy her. Against the vicious intrigues only the useful farm managers Dancy Cutler stands beside her, whose love she misconceived first. The revenge is bitterly when she falls for the persuasiveness of the equally rich as mysterious Irishman Michael Fitzgerald.

Delightful!
4 June 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This is a movie I stumbled across during an afternoon of channel-surfing and immediately came to love. Though the premise initially seems to be a bit of an 80's cliche, the endearing nature of the characters draws you in (especially Brian Kerwin's superb Dancy Cutler - his performance alone makes watching the movie worthwhile). The picture painted of the Thoroughbred industry is also very true-to-life and, most importantly, so are the horses themselves. This only serves to make the relationships between the human characters more credible. (My personal favorite part is the expression on Maude's face when Dancy tells her he can get "anything" in foal.) I sum this up as a movie with something for everyone - great characters, romance, struggle, triumph, and great scenery.
