Storyline

Successfull Virginian horse-trainer and irresistible womanizer Virgil marries stud farm owner Frank Hadley's naively devoted daughter. To avoid being discovered skimming to pay his gambling debts, Virgil ends up arranging for Frank's death in a car 'accident' and his daughter being jailed, then convinces her to sign a divorce to save the farm's reputation and remarries an equally gullible prey. Alas, his first wife is inspired by a jail mate to become a race horse investment consultant, using a completely new identity, and obsessed with revenge, which gets priority over her re-found first love Sam.

Surprisingly Engaging
14 August 2004 | by mfg73See all my reviews

I was surprisingly engaged by this TV movie which I caught one rainy Saturday on Lifetime. Once I started watching it, I was unable to stop watching. Crystal Bernard is very effective in her role as a woman betrayed who then tries to get her life back on track. The rest of the cast is fairly good as well though it was disappointing to me to lose Barry Corbin's character so early. As the other reviewer noted, there are some unique plot devices in this movie which make it stand above the average fare on television. In particular, the horse racing story line is most welcome. Overall, I would recommend this movie. It is worth the investment of your time.
