Audience Reviews for The Derby Stallion

Really nice film.

Leigh Ryan

Super Reviewer

The bond between horse and rider is very strong in this quite lovely family film though the story itself is just a remarkable thing to see but as a fan of horses this film is a must see for all those horse lovers out there and is quite the story of standing up for what you believe in and going after a dream full speed ahead overall i loved the film and can't wait to see the next horse inspired film kudos to the cast and director


A very touching and heartfelt movie. One of Zac Efron's best performance's. GRADE:A-
