I love this cute short film about an intrepid and imaginative little girl and a splendid horse race. I too was a horse-crazy little girl with a very active imagination and fond memories of watching horse races with my grandfather. However, given the lack of champagne-filled dinner parties at our house, most of our childhood races took place on our big, sloping driveway with a handful of HotWheels cars. (My trusty all-metal miniature Mustang usually won.) What sorts of memories do you have from childhood?
Tiring of her parents' boring dinner parties, a young girl comes up with a surprising scheme to make this one work for her.
