To celebrate the upcoming release of the new movie Dream Horse, which is based on the true story of a horse named Dream Alliance, the legendary horse himself will return 10 years later as Guest of Honor and parade in the winner’s enclosure at Chepstow Race Course on Monday, April 13, 2020. He is one of the most celebrated horses in racing, bred on an allotment, who went on to win the biggest race in Wales, the Coral Welsh Grand National, 2009. The retired champ will hopefully be available to meet his fans throughout the day.
Dream Horse is inspired by Dream Alliance’s historic win and stars Damian Lewis, Toni Collette, Owen Teale and Joanna Page. Get ready for the feel-good film of the spring, as Dream Horse hits UK cinemas on April 17, shortly after Chepstow’s family fun day to coincide with the launch of the movie.

The champion racehorse horse Dream Alliance
We reported earlier that Damian would be staring in the upcoming film Dream Horse here. If you don’t know the story of South Wales champion racehorse Dream Alliance already, you should.
It’s an inspiring tale and now it’s being given the big screen treatment starring Homeland and Billions-star, Damian Lewis, and Hereditary and Muriel’s Wedding actress, Toni Collette.
Named Dream Horse, the film will shoot on location in Wales this spring and will also be directed by Welsh filmmaker Euros Lyn, famed for TV drama gold like Broadchurch, Happy Valley and Kiri.
Dream Horse will share the story of Dream Alliance who was bred and owned by a group of friends from a Cefn Fforest workingmen’s club.
From raising the steed on a slag heap in the Caerphilly borough to winning the Welsh Grand National – and slicing a tendon and undergoing stem cell therapy in between – it focuses on the true rags-to-riches story of Dream Alliance, who owners include Jan Vokes, her husband Brian and tax advisor Howard Davies.
Collette is due to play Jan Vokes, who along with her fellow syndicate members paid in £10 per week for the horse’s training, and Lewis will play Howard Davies.
