Trivia

Two horses were injured during filming and later euthanized. The American Humane Association released a statement saying that both racehorses suffered severed fractures that were checked by veterinarians and deemed inoperable. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals criticized HBO over the injuries and euthanization of the horses. After the death of a third horse, HBO suspended any filming involving horses while investigations by the AHA took place. It was determined that the third horse was not injured during filming. HBO decided to cancel the series rather than risk any further animal injuries. See more »

A bit hard to follow but gold when you do...
28 January 2012 | by (SIngapore) – See all my reviews

There is an undeniably large amount of jargon used in the pilot episode, however with a little bit of careful listening the meaning of almost all of it can be easily 'sussed' out. The pilot stands out in my opinion for the creative use of camera angles which allow the viewer to immerse into the horse race. The editorial work is also quite slick. The performances of Nick Nolte and Dustin Hoffman are quite good and I am excited to see Patrick J Adams in the coming episode.

I terms of story-telling and plot lines, the last few minutes of the pilot do help clear up some of the prevailing confusion regarding the direction of the story. All in all the pilot is a solid effort and achieves its goal of setting up the stage for a potentially gripping series.
