Bad things: Script is complete drivel. Obviously written by someone who knows nothing about horses, dialogue, story construction, creating believable characters, or basic logic. There are numerous examples of no one paying any attention to continuity. The race is badly shot (and you have to really try to mess up filming running horses), at no time do the horses and riders look like they're actually racing, and it's painfully obvious that, in the riding closeups, the principals are on mechanical horses. K.K. is too old, but honestly, that's the least of the sins committed here. Good things: The horse is pretty. The actor who plays the mother gives a master class on how to do a decent job acting even when you have crappy lines.
