Borel stars alongside Skeet Ulrich, who plays trainer Chip Woolley, and Christian Kane, who portrays co-owner Mark Allen. Both actors said in recent interviews with Daily Racing Form that Borel nearly stole the movie that is being brought to the big screen by Jim Wilson, the Academy Award-winning producer behind Dances With Wolves.
"He was like a matador in a bullring in Madrid, so confident and yet so open," Ulrich said. "As an actor, I thought he did an incredible job."
Kane cited the same experience as one of his most memorable in working with Borel. "Calvin's acting performance was brilliant," Kane said. "He's nothing but charisma. He walked into someone else's playground and just nailed it." "Putting Borel up on a horse, it was really cool," said Kane. See more »

My husband and I went looking for a fun movie last weekend and ran across 50-1. Being a horse lover and a delighted witness to Mine that Bird's Kentucky Derby performance, we drove the hour and a half to see it in nearby Santa Fe. What a fun movie! We thoroughly enjoyed it, as apparently did everyone else in the theater. We were all laughing, crying and several times nearly the entire audience stood to clap for joy. Awesome movie depicting the underdog story of down-to-earth folk from Southern New Mexico - including a down-on-his-luck, broke (in more than one sense) cowboy horse trainer, a good hearted, wealthy NM owner, and a team of friends-- risked everything on a little horse with a big heart. Knowing this was based on the true story of how Mine that Bird and his unlikely winning NM team shocked horse racing royalty and the world, helped firmly planted it in my heart as one of my favorite movies of the last many years. It may not win Oscars, but the story, the beautiful NM landscape, the good acting of its cast including the real life jockey, Calvin Borel (who did a great job acting and has the most amazing smile I've ever seen), HORSES, and - most of all - the true life story of shocking success in spite of 50-1 odds, puts this movie on the top of my list. A must see!
