Born to Rein

USA – 01:26:00
Directed by Jody Lamp

The Born to Rein documentary film spotlights America’s oldest and most thrilling sport — thoroughbred horse racing. The film honors the lives and careers of native Nebraskans and National Hall of Fame Trainers – John Nerud of Minatare; and father-and-son trainers, Marion and Jack Van Berg of Columbus – and how their horsemanship continues to impact and influence the national thoroughbred industry today. The timing of the documentary coincides with 100th Anniversary of America’s First Triple Crown Winner, Sir Barton, who spent time in Nebraska, after retiring from racing, as a U.S. Army Remount Service Stallion at Fort Robinson near Crawford.
