Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Jim Wilson's sports drama 50 to 1 tells the story of horse trainer Bernie Wooley (Skeet Ulrich), veterinarian Leonard Blach (William Devane), and owner Mark Allen (Christian Kane), three formerly misfit New Mexico cowboys who end up preparing a horse to compete in the Kentucky Derby. They get the horse into the race despite a series of mishaps on their way to Churchill Downs, but the odd-looking equine starts the race a 50-1 underdog against the world's racing elite. Based on the true story of the thoroughbred Mine That Bird.
