The film tells the true story of Jan Vokes, (Academy Award® nominee Toni Collette) a Welsh cleaner and bartender, who decides to breed and rear a race horse. One night, a chance encounter with an arrogant customer, Howard Davies (Damian Lewis), a former racehorse syndicate leader, inspires her to take on a new challenge. She persuades her neighbors and friends to contribute financially to the scheme. The group’s unlikely investment plan pays off as the horse rises through the ranks and puts them in a race for the national championship.
#DreamHorse director Euros Lyn explains why he wanted to adapt the true story of Jan Vokes raising a racehorse for screen: "She persuades everybody in the village to put in 10 pounds a week" | #VarietyStudio presented by @ItsOnATT #ATTOnLocation pic.twitter.com/0u8pImrCii
