I love horse movies based on true stories, especially comeback stories which Champions a no-brainer. Based on a true story this film tells the story of British jockey Bob Champion. Bob Champion is not only one of the top jockeys of all time, but he also has a remarkable life story. I don't want to spoil the movie for you, but in the movie Bob is a great horse jockey who finds out he has cancer, which forces him to step away from racing as he gets treatment. Luckily, he is able to beat the cancer and return to racing where he gets to ride a special racehorse named Aldaniti in the Grand National Steeplechase. I won't say anymore, but you will definitely want to have some tissues handy as you watch this incredible horse movie.
