Synopsis

Long métrage documentaire sur Ron Turcotte, l'un des meilleurs jockeys de tous les temps. Rares sont les champions qui ont gagné la Triple Couronne américaine. Cet exploit, le jockey acadien l’a réussi en 1973. Mais en 1978, après une illustre carrière qui lui a valu plus de 3000 victoires, Ron fait une chute qui le laisse paraplégique. Ce documentaire relate le parcours de cet amoureux des chevaux qui est devenu une légende au-delà des frontières de son pays. Le film présente aussi des séquences inédites du cheval Secretariat, de sa propriétaire Penny Chenery, ainsi que des vainqueurs de la Triple Couronne Steve Cauthen et Jean Cruguet.
