Storyline

After the sudden death of her father leaves a teenage girl without a family, she becomes lost in her own anger and sadness. Her family doctor (Daryl Hannah) informs her that her father had a secret, that the mother she never knew (Claire Forlani) was alive and well. When she travels to meet her, she befriends a horse trainer (Louis Gossett Jr) and discovers that in caring for the horse, she is able to overcome her hardships and emotional trauma. Together they begin to win many races and upset the favorites, owned by an egocentric mogul (Eric Roberts). Through the victories and new friendships she forms, she learns to find her way back to happiness. Written by VMI

Loved this Family Film
11 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed Amazing Racer so much. Plus, since it is based on a true story, it is even better. If you enjoy family films, I think you will enjoy this one very much.

I thought the acting was great for a family film since sometimes, in this type of film, the acting can be a bit below par. Outstanding cinematography, production value, screenplay, and set design. Good music picks too.

We enjoyed the variety of several well know actors. Good to see Charles Durning one last time before his recent death. Cast just seemed to work together very well.
