Born to Rein debuted in 2019 to commemorate and celebrate the 100-year Anniversary of America’s first Triple Crown Winner. This documentary recognizes horse racing as America’s oldest sport and takes viewers from Long Island, New York, where horse racing began in 1667, to the unlikeliest of places like Nebraska and Wyoming. The film pays tribute to Sir Barton, as America’s First Triple Crown Winner (1919-2019) and horse racing legengs like National Hall of Fame Trainers John Nerud (the first marketing director for the inaugural Breeders Cup) and Marion and Jack Van Berg. The film explores how the horsemanship of Nerud and the Van Bergs continues to influence and impact the national thoroughbred industry today.
