Director: Dick Lowry
Produced by:
Released By:
MPAA Rating: G

The heartwarming direct-to-video family drama A Horse for Danny stars a very young Leelee Sobieski as the precocious 11-year-old title character, and Robert Urich as Eddie, her horse-trainer uncle. Danny may be young, but she is also a race-track veteran — who knows how scam-artists fix the races, and how to determine when a scam is being pulled. When Uncle Eddie espouses his dreams of riding into glory on the back of a stallion, Danny finds the perfect mare for him — Tom Thumb. Raising her cash by careful betting, and pooling her money with a friend, Gerald, Danny purchases the horse for Eddie and it turns him into a champion racer. But a number of quick-draw racetrack con artists, including Noel Ferguson, see dollar signs and threaten to steal Eddie’s thunder — first with a botched attempt to purchase the horse, then through more shady means. Directed by Dick Lowry, the film also stars country singer Ed Bruce.
