First, I just happened to click onto this program one evening and I was so delightfully surprised to view such an excellent documentary....the best part was the fact "all of the material was actual and true information...the people and locations, were actual living horsemen/women and aution barns, racetracks, etc. etc. It was one of the best I have ever seen on the television (as compared to Secretariat...I was soooo disappointed in that productions, and, I would compare that to a Walt Disney Horse Picture..of course some of the facts were true but the entire story was intended for a child and having seen this great horse to me it was such a disappointment....compared to The Thoroughbre which was true throughout....also.....I was impressed with the ordering....when I called there was no problem and as to my astonishment, I was told that my purhcase of two of this DVD, they should arrive between the 20th and 24th of the month in which they were ordered...on the eve of the 20th, they arrived as stated (this has never happened before and although I am confident that it cannot be specified and accurate, it was a pleasure to have received this when indicated. The one DVD I presented to some friends who were celebrating their wedding anniversary and they could not have been more delighted and entertained.....of course what made this production so very very interesting and fun to watch was the fact it was not "fiction" it was ALL TRUE DOCUMENTATION.....if perchance you have other DVD's about the Thoroughbred and/or Standardbred and/or Saddlebreds. I would be interested in learning about them and their availability and costs also any and all other horse documentations that you may have availale for purchase, I would be happy to hear from you. Again, thanks for such a wonderful vollume of interesting historical events of the horse world.

This film should be called born to be abused.
The horses are over bred for the human's entertainment. Then horribly be slaughtered if not fast enough. They call this a romantic sport.
It is sports if they use their own strength and they race fast themselves. It is disgusting.
It is very sad for the animals to be abused by the horrible and selfish humans.

Comments about PBS Thoroughbred: Born to Run DVD:

This film should be called born to run fast enough or die. Over bred for our entertainment then horribly slaughtered if not fast enough. And they call this a romantic sport. I'm disgusted with it.

A horse lovers dream

By Solidplat

Comments about PBS Thoroughbred: Born to Run DVD:

This DVD goes beyond the visuals of the horses and takes the viewer beyond the scenes of thoroughbred racing. It shows the successes and failures of the owners. It takes the viewer to the stables, the trainers and the jockeys.It will keep you riveted to the screen from start to finish.

By NO NICKNAME --" IT IS JUST 'ME"

from HAMILTON, ONTARIO, CANADA

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS Thoroughbred: Born to Run DVD:

THIS IS ONE EXCELLENT VIDEOS ON THE THOROUGHBRED AND IT WAS MOST REFRESHING TO OVSERVE THE FACT THAT ALL OF THE PARTICIPANTS WERE ACTUAL LIVE, LIVING HORSEMEN/TRAINERS/JOCKEYS/AUCTIONEER'S/ EXERCISE RIDERS/ETC. ETC. ETC.
THERE WAS NOT ONE THING FICTIOUS....EVERYTHING WAS ACTUAL HAPPENINGS AND THE SURROUNDINGS WERE IN MOST CASES ACTUAL RACE TRACKS....MOST POSITIVE AND ENLIGHTENING VIDEO THAT I HAVE SEEN...IT WAS EXCELLENT PLUS....I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AS A GIFT FOR ANY AND ALL OF MLY FRIENDS...THANK YOU FOR PRODUCING SUCH AN ACTUAL ACCOUNT OF THE THOROUGHBRED HORSE.....SINCERELY CLARIBEL M. PLACE
