CHARMED MAGAZINE (June 2005) Oded Fehr about the film: "...I've done an untitled film with Kurt Russell and Dakota Fanning, which we shot in Kentucky. That's a lovely family film. It's three generations - a grandfather, Kris Kristofferson, a son, Kurt Russell, and a granddaughter, Dakota Fanning. Basically they're horse trainers who wanted to own horses. A horse gets injured and the little girl believes in the horse and believes that the horse will be able to race again, even though no none else believes in it. Eventually, she gets the horse to race again. And I play a horse owner who helps her finance the horse's racing, because the family has no money at all. Dakota is amazing, Kurt is fantastic and Kris the nicest actor I've ever met..."

Ben Crane (Kurt Russell) was once a great horseman, whose gifts as a trainer were now being wasted on making other menís fortunes. Sonya was a great horse whose promising future on the racetrack was suddenly cut short by a career-ending broken leg. Considered as good as dead to her owner, who also happens to be Benís boss, Sonya is given to Ben as severance pay, along with his walking papers. Now, it will take the unwavering faith and determination of Benís young daughter, Cale (Dakota Fanning), to bring these two damaged souls together in a quest for a seemingly impossible goal: to win the Breedersí Cup Classic.
