Storyline

Released from prison after three years, "Ace" Bernstein plots revenge against the colleagues who betrayed him. With his trusted aide/chauffeur Gus Demitriou acting as a front for his race horse investment, Ace seeks to reverse the sagging fortunes of a famous racetrack. Meanwhile, four dissolute gamblers at the race track - Jerry, Marcus, Renzo and Lonnie - pool their meager resources to make a Pick Six bet that could be worth millions. A key to their fortunes is a long-shot horse trained by Turo Escalante, a self-made success story with loads of talent and few scruples, whoʼs also training Gus/Ace's colt. Walter Smith, another more grizzled trainer, sees classic potential in an untested thoroughbred with impressive bloodlines. Written by HBO Publicity

Trivia

Unlike several of his recent films, which were shot mostly digitally, director Michael Mann decided to shoot most of this pilot on film, as he thought it would better capture skies, clouds, and exteriors in bright sunlight. Digital cameras were used for racing scenes. The rest of the series was shot mostly digitally, with film used for high-speed shots over 60 frames per second. See more »

Quotes

Chester Bernstein: We were in the back room putting things together from the ground up... Learning from those that came before - them that had a lot of blood on their hands.
