Variety
Conventional but rousingly effective picture.
80
An engaging sports movie about the greatest racehorse ever and his female owner who literally bets the farm on his supremacy.

Boxoffice Magazine
Particularly impressive is veteran cinematographer Dean Semler's inventive cinematography that manages to put the audience right in the middle of the races like never before.
75
This is one terrific movie about one terrific horse. It enthralls on so many levels-emotional, cinematic, historic.
67
This pleasantly rote movie will rouse you.
67
A conventional story, conventionally told.
63
The story as a whole seems stale and overly familiar.
60
Lane, experiencing her career heyday, is sweet enough to have you rooting for her, even if her journey to the winner's circle is an odds-on favorite.
58
Tampa Bay Times
It's Lane who's saddled with dragging this nag over the finish line, with her cliched portrayal of another single-minded woman beating men at their own game.
50
Orlando Sentinel
A well-acted tale of an underdog's triumph that sorely lacks an underdog, it teeters between pleasantly generic film biography and rank manipulation.
