“50 to 1,” movie starring Skeet Ulrich, begins filming in New Mexico

Academy Award-winning producer Jim Wilson this week began filming his new independent movie “50 to 1” about longshot racehorse Mine That Bird's wild journey to the 2009 Kentucky Derby.

 
PRLog - Sep. 6, 2012 - LAS CRUCES, NM – September 5, 2012 – Academy Award-winning producer Jim Wilson this week began filming 50 to 1, a movie based on the true story of an underdog racehorse and the misfit cowboys who shocked the racing world with their 2009 win at the Kentucky Derby.

The film stars Skeet Ulrich, Christian Kane, William Devane and Madelyn Deutch as the crazy New Mexico crew that takes Mine That Bird, the small, crooked-legged racehorse, on a fun-filled road trip across the country to the land of Kentucky’s blue bloods.

Wilson, who produced Oscar-winner Dances with Wolves, The Bodyguard, Wyatt Earp and Message In A Bottle, is directing the film he co-wrote with screenwriter Faith Conroy.

“This story is quite the romp,” Conroy said. “It’s inspiring, heartfelt and shows that even the wildest of dreams can come true.”

Ulrich (As Good as it Gets) plays Bennie “Chip” Woolley, Mine That Bird’s trainer, who trailered the longshot gelding 1,600 miles to Louisville for the biggest show in horseracing. Kane (Leverage) plays Mark Allen, co-owner of Mine That Bird with equine veterinarian Leonard “Doc” Blach, played by Devane (The Dark Knight Rises). Deutch (Mayor Cupcake) plays Alex Ayres, Mine That Bird’s exercise rider.

Director of Photography Tim Suhrstedt (Little Miss Sunshine) brings his vision to the film’s cinematography, shooting at locations in Albuquerque, Las Cruces and Sante Fe, New Mexico. Filming also includes scenes at Sunland Park Racetrack in New Mexico, Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, and Santa Anita Park in Los Angeles.
