Harness Racing Scenes were Good, 19 January 2013
Author: Zoe8874 from United States

The only reason I watched was because of the harness racing element. The writers obviously didn't do a very thorough job on that research because a 16 year old with NO experience would never have been able to obtain a pari-mutuel drivers license in the time frame represented.

The emotional relationship with the mother and daughter could occur and the involvement of horses helps heal a lot of wounds. The story just throws in too many undeveloped characters and impossible horse training scenarios that are not reality.

Clean language and gorgeous horses and racing shots would make it suitable entertainment for kids. Purist racing fans are going to hate it.
