Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Experience the true thrill of triumph over adversity as the inspirational tale of legendary jockey Laffit comes to the screen in a documentary narrated by Kevin Costner and directed and produced by Jim Wilson. Born into a humble Panama household, Laffit's lifelong love of sport and horses drove him to take to the tracks with great enthusiasm and steadfast determination to make a name for himself. It wasn't always easy though, and from his breathtaking race against famed jockey Bill Shoemaker to the tragic fall that nearly ended his career and the Kentucky Derby comeback that propelled him into sports history, Laffit's remarkable tale proves just how much a little faith and a lot of hard work can truly pay off.
