Dark Horse

500 Days Of Film Reviews Dark Horse, Louise Osmond’s Inspirational Film About A Dream Alliance

 

Dark Horse is set in a small Welsh mining village called Cefn Fforest. 

 

The documentary tells the true story of this community who, in early 2000, decided to enter the sport of kings - the elite world of horse racing. 

 

Their journey began when barmaid, Jan Vokes, overheard businessman, Howard Davies, talking about the time he owned a racehorse.

 

Having bred pigeons and whippets, Vokes was inspired to breed a racehorse of her own.

 

The two pooled their expertise and finances and bought a cheap (but not particularly promising) thoroughbred mare, paired her with an aging stallion and raised the foal on their slagheap allotment.  

 

This was still no cheap venture, of course. As a result, Vokes and Davies asked people from their community to join a syndicate. The group of 23 each agreed to contribute £10 per week.

 

They then set about training their horse - calling him Dream Alliance.

 

What followed took Vokes, Davies and the entire community on a truly remarkable and inspiring journey.
