A movie inspired by a true story...

Dreamer is about a race horse who breaks a leg during a race, and a man at the stable gets fired for accusing his boss that it's his fault. He gets paid $6,000 in cash plus the horse with a broken leg. He takes the horse home and manages to heal the leg with the help of a vet and his dad.

When the horse is fit enough the decide to enter the horse in a claiming race, thinking that nobody would claim a horse that had once a broken leg... especially since you have to make the claim before you've watched the race.
Sonador (the horse) gets claimed and the man's daughter is extremely upset.

The daughter is very depressed for days until the man buys Sonador back and puts the horse in his daughter's name, she is now in charge of everything. He manages to get her in the Breeders cup! Does she win or not? That's for me to know and for you to find out!

This movie is my favorite horse movie EVER!!! 5 stars!!!

Dreamer is the best movie I ever seen. It's just like Secretariat but his story is way different but it's a bit different. My dad's horse has his blood.

Cute Movie
by: Anonymous

It's about a eleven year old girl named Kale Crane who loves horses and lives on a horse farm but the catch is they don't own any horses. Kale's dad works at a racetrack and he promised Kale to take her there. One day Kale begs him until he takes her with him. That day a beautiful horse called Sonyador is going to race. Kale's dad says that the horse shouldn't race because of some heat in her front leg but Sonya's rich owner insists Mr. Crane is just being fussy and that Sonyador should race. So Sonya races. But Sonya falls and breaks her leg. her owner tells the vet to put Sonya down but Mr. Crane stops them saying he'll buy her. The owner laughs and then fires him saying he just bought a "Dead" horse. Kale and her dad take Sonya home and so the adventure begins. Kale forms a unique bond with Sonya and the family decides to breed her. Just when everyone was excited about a baby horse the vet declares Sonya unable to be pregnant. Kale hears her dad complaining that if Kale hadn't come along that day at work he would still have a job and he wouldn't have to feed a horse who does nothing. Meanwhile, Sonya's leg is growing stronger so Kale runs away on her back. Kale can't handle a thoroughbred racehorse so Sonya bolts with her. Mr. Crane is racing along after them and catches Kale as she tumbles off Sonya. Kale's dad races Sonya in an claimer race and surprisingly someone does claim Sonya. Kale is depressed for many days until one day her dad buys Sonya back and gives her to Kale. Kale wants to race her again so they begin training her. Sonya is FAST so Kale dreams of entering her in the breeders cup classic. Kale tells her family her dream so they try. The fee is high but Kale's grandpa chips in along with everyone else and Sonya is entered. On race day Sonya gets in a fight with her rival Goliath but neither horse is injured. They race, Goliath and Sonya neck and neck but Sonya pulls ahead running down the straight with pure speed. Kale runs to the winners circle and puts a wreath of roses around Sonya. She mounts Sonya and they ride off alone together into the sunset. (without Sonya bolting and the whole rescue scene again) THE END

racing horses young
by: marespooscats

YES it IS normal to race horses at an early age bUT just as with a ballet dancer - they SHOULD wait to race them till they are mature as their bones are still young and not strong. NO Ballet dancer goes on Toe until their bones are strong and no horse should be raced until the same - THEN they wont' break down as they do!

NOT a good movie
by: Anonymous

This movie is a fairytale! Race horses that break their legs do not get saved. Look at Barbaro, and Eight Belles and Ruffian!

This movie glorifies horse racing and it is a CRUEL sport - they are running BABIES - not grown horses. The babies legs are not strong enough or mature enough for this but the owners want money and NOW so they race them anyway!

If they REALLY loved the horse they would not race it. Racing is just plain cruel.

They take babies and beat them till they run their hearts out - like Barbaro and Eight Bells!

"You are a great champion.
When you ran the ground shook, sky opened and mere mortals parted.
Parted their way to victory.
And i'll meet you in the winner's circle.
Where I'll put a blanket of flowers on your back."

REALLY enjoyed it!
by: Madeline

Dreamer is the story of a young girl, Cale (Dakota Fanning), who longs for a close relationship with her adored father. Ben Crane (Kurt Russell), Cale's father is a great horseman who sacrifices everything to save an injured racehorse, SoƱador (called Sonya - means "dreamer" in Spanish). Sonya's bright future on the racetrack is suddenly cut short by a career-ending broken leg. Out of love for Cale, Ben rescues Sonya from euthanasia and takes the horse as severance pay on the day he loses his job.

With unstoppable faith and determination, Cale unites two damaged souls, the father she adores and the horse she loves. Together they surmount great hurdles, both physical and emotional, to compete in the Breeders' Cup Classic, trying to turn broken dreams into a miraculous, many-faceted victory.

This is a great movie and i REALLY enjoyed it! i think other horsecrazy girls will to!

It is inspired by a true story, making it all the better :)

This movie is absolutely perfect, very clearly demonstrating how thoroughbreds and other horses can recover after breaking legs.

It is a heart wrenching movie about a girl and her horse.

The movie Dreamer
by: Emma

Dreamer is about a horse named Sonador(thats spanish for Dreamer,it sounds like Son-ya-dore),a girl named Cale Crane and her father.Sonador is a race horse, a two year old filly.She has only ran in two races and has won both of them.Just before her third race Cale's father, who works at the stables where she lives, tells her owner,Everett,that she should'nt race thet day because she is standing funny on one leg.Everett races her anyway and,sure enough she breaks her leg.Everett says to put her down and Mr. Crane gets angry because he thinks the horse could be saved.He begins to yell at Everett and he ends up fired.He reminds Everett that he ows him $9,000.Everett offers to give him $6,000 right then and there and the other $3,000 later.Mr. Crane says he'll take just the $6,000 if he can have the horse too.Everett agrees.So he takes the horse home with him and sets her leg.She gets better and they decide they will breed her with a good stud and make some big money off of her foal.They are extremely disappointed to find out that she is infertile.Then at one point Cale over-hears her parents talking about Sonador, and how if Cale hadn't of been with him he would have left the horse at the stables.Cale is angry and decides to run away.So she tacks up Sonador to run away on.But when Mr.Crane comes into the barn a door slams and Sonador bolts.So when they finally catch her and are sure that Cale is all right,they decide that the horse is fast enough to race.They enter in a claiming race,thinking that no one will buy a horse that had a broken leg.But, she does get claimed and Cale is very upset.Her father buys the horse back and puts her in Cale's care.They find a way to enter the horse in the Breeder's Cup race.The ending,though a little unrealistic, is pretty happy.

2 great horse movies
by: Ashley from Kentucky

2 really great horse movies are Dreamer and Moondance Alexander. Dreamer is about a horse who breaks its leg on the track. With love and care Cale, an 11 year old girl, helps, with her fathers help, get the horse back on the track and in time to race. Moondance Alexander is about a girl who gets picked on because her name is Moondance. She meets a horse and trains it in time to compete. These are both really GREAT movies. Enjoy!

by: Mary from OB, FL, USA

In dreamer, a racehorse injured from a racing fall gets everything she needs. When a little girl falls in love and someone buys her. She just can't bear to hear her father's voice.
