Horse Racing Fans Take Note!
30 December 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

What a nice tribute to an outstanding athlete: jockey Laffitt Pincay Jr.. Being a horse racing fan for many years, Pincay was a familiar name to me, as were 98 percent of the other people in this documentary. However, I had little knowledge of the man.

Little did I realize what an incredible physical specimen and disciplined human being this guy was and what lengths we went to do stay that way for 39 years in his profession. How many other athletes, it is asked here in this film, are on the top of their game for 39 straight years?! Nobody but Pincay.

A bunch of famous jockeys, a few top trainers (D. Wayne Lukas and Bob Baffert heading the list), horse owners, celebrities, reporters and others all explain why Pincay was so good at what he did. Better yet, they showed us. There is a lot of racing footage in here, and it shows some losses and horrible spills as well as the big victories. The latter, obviously, gets more play, as it should.

You'll meet Laffit's amazing family, too, and be moved at the end when the famous Panamanian is given a special day in his honor at Santa Anita racetrack. All in all, for a horse racing fan, this is great stuff!
