Idol Chatter

Hannah Rhodes (Danielle Campbell) lost her father Gentry Rhodes (Luke Perry) from a heart attack. She is faced with one of the biggest decisions of her life to save her family’s beloved horse ranch after her father accumulated debt. She has a choice to sell the ranch or pay $100,000 dollars to a man named Darden to keep the property in the film “Race to Win.”

She will need more than courage to press on–she will need to win a local horse race as her entire family legacy is at stake. With an upcoming barrel racing competition on the horizon, she entered with the hopes that she can be the family’s miracle.

But can she do it in 30 days?

Well, if she can overcome the evil Darden, who plots against her, she can. Darden will stop at nothing to get his money and the ranch, including hiring a vet to drug the horse she would be riding.

Although her father left the earth, he was still guiding his daughter. With the love and support from her family and visits from her dad, she realizes that she can make a difference.

The movie is about facing your fears, something we all can relate to and something the entire family can enjoy together. We are told in Deuteronomy 31:6 to “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” This Scripture easily ties into the film.

The film was given the Seal of Approval from The Dove Foundation and also stars Aiden Flowers (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children ), Candice Michele Barley (The Hollow), Thomas Francis Murphy (LBJ, Free State of Jones) and Amy Brassette (True Detective).

“Race to Win” will be available on DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment. To learn more about the film, please visit
