A race against all the odds

AN inspirational true story of achievement against the odds opens at the Regal Picturehouse today (Friday).

AN inspirational true story of achievement against the odds opens at the Regal Picturehouse today (Friday).

Set in a former mining village in Wales against the backdrop of the recent recession, Dark Horse tells the tale of a group of friends from a working men’s club who take on the sport of kings and breed a racehorse.

Raised on a slag-heap allotment, their foal grows into an unlikely champion, beating the finest thoroughbreds in the land before suffering a near-fatal accident.

Nursed back to health by the love of his owners â?? for whom he’s become a source of inspiration and hope â?? he makes a remarkable recovery and returns to the track for a heart-stopping comeback.

An uplifting story with a strong community spirit at its heart, it is much more than a documentary.



It is about the triumph of human spirit and what can be achieved from nothing, told with plenty of humour, particularly in the anecdotes from the syndicate members.
