    Default Movie - First Saturday in May

    One of the trainers shown was in a wheelchair. I think his name was Dan (or Don). Is he still in CA training horses?

    Cool!!! Thanks for the link. I thought he was incredible for still training and riding. He said he is paralyzed from the chest down. Many people would have a drastic life style change.

    I don't now if either of you saw the film, but I got a whole different take on Barbaro from it. That horse was hot.

    I did! I liked it. I actually forced my brother and sister-in-law to watch it with me, so that they could maybe understand why I get so excited over racing. I'm not sure if it worked - but they seemed to enjoy it.
