PG-13 | | Drama
Based on the inspiring true story of Mine That Bird, a misfit group of New Mexico cowboys find themselves on the journey of a lifetime when their crooked-footed racehorse qualifies for the 2009 Kentucky Derby.
Borel stars alongside Skeet Ulrich, who plays trainer Chip Woolley, and Christian Kane, who portrays co-owner Mark Allen. Both actors said in recent interviews with Daily Racing Form that Borel nearly stole the movie that is being brought to the big screen by Jim Wilson, the Academy Award-winning producer behind Dances With Wolves.
"He was like a matador in a bullring in Madrid, so confident and yet so open," Ulrich said. "As an actor, I thought he did an incredible job."
Kane cited the same experience as one of his most memorable in working with Borel. "Calvin's acting performance was brilliant," Kane said. "He's nothing but charisma. He walked into someone else's playground and just nailed it." "Putting Borel up on a horse, it was really cool," said Kane.
We've got a chance to be part of something truly great. Maybe we'll look stupid to some, but life ain't worth much if all you do is play it safe. It's about bein' out there, takin' chances.
