A story about a little girl who buys a race horse

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Saratoga Summer is renamed "A Horse for Danny". It came out when I was little, and I had to wait until I was older to understand it fully. The story itself is about an 11-year-old girl named Danny, who wins a dice throw for a small horse with incredible bloodlines. While Danny is confident in her horse's-Tom Thumb-abilities, there are plenty of others who don't believe the horse has what it takes to win in the high stakes world of racing.

Personally, I like the movie. It's funny how it's laid out, including how 11 year old Danny watches over trainers' shoulders to collect data of racehorses, and then gives the information Moody, a man who takes unofficial bets from gamblers outside of the track. Danny seems to wander on her own a lot. And the plot does not lack villains, who help to enhance the feeling of the competitive racing world.

Overall, the movie is good, not great. No legendary, will-be-talked-about years to come here. Happy-ending, good hearted story about a girl, her horse, and how they win with the odds against them.
