Horseracing Film to Debut in May

I had the privilege of seeing the Hennegan Brothers amazing film, "The First Saturday in May" on Wednesday here in Tucson.

It has been said before in many places, but I will reiterate: This movie is absolutely fantastic and has the potential to reach the masses. I stopped counting the number of times I got the chills while watching at 6, and even welled up in the eyes a few times!

The producers/directors/filmakers Brad and John Hennegan, announced that they will be releasing the film via Mark Cuban's "Independent movie theaters" this April, hoping to piggy back off of the mainstream medias "Derby Freakout" period.

Here's the Bloodhorse story on it from today.

The brothers mentioned the film would be released in about 12 cities nationwide in April, leading up to a full DVD release sometime thereafter.

Here's some interesting information on the Mark Cuba/independent theater situation.

Hey Ruben. It's the Hennegan Brothers. Thanks for the mention, my man. Appreciate you coming out to watch the film.

If people want to check out the trailer they can go to our website

Please register your e-mail there as well so we can update everyone on screening and DVD sale info.

And spread the word to your local track or racing group. We're a small operation so we need the support of racing ambassadors like yourself.

Talk soon,

The Hennegan Brothers

I will look for it. I will go watch the trailer link they just posted. I am working on my own project out at Portland Meadows about life on the backside--so far so good.
