Product Description

When struggling fifteen-year-old Patrick McCardle is convinced by a horse trainer to train for the Derby Cup, he discovers more lies within him than he ever imagined. This collector's edition features an all-new behind the scenes featurette with commentary. Starring Zac Efron and Bill Cobbs.

Amazon.com

Part of growing up is discovering something that inspires a true passion within and allowing that passion to guide one's actions and choices. The process of self-discovery isn't easy, and when 15-year-old Patrick McCardle (High School Musical's Zac Efron) realizes that playing baseball is more his father's dream than his own, it's an unlikely friendship with old man Houston Jones (Bill Cobbs), a recluse and horse trainer, that inspires Patrick's newfound passion for the exciting world of horse jumping. Patrick and his father (William R. Moses) clash over Patrick's decision to give up baseball and spend time training for the Derby Cup race with Houston, but eventually Patrick and his father come to a mutual understanding and gain a whole new sense of respect for one another as they begin to really talk about and listen to each other's dreams and desires. The road to becoming a derby rider is difficult, but as Houston and Patrick work together, the two share dreams and disappointments and become incredibly close. In the end, Houston, a most unlikely role model, winds up having a profoundly positive impact on Patrick's life both on and off the racetrack. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars Wins Our Derby June 25, 2007
Format:DVD
With all the junk out there, it's nice to watch a movie with such positive values and one which can be shared with the whole family. Zac Efron is endearing -- it's not surprising he has soared to stardom in "High School Musical." And Bill Cobbs as the wise old horseman is great. I loved the mentor chemistry between them. There is a lot to like in this movie and I recommend it heartily.

4.0 out of 5 stars good family flick January 11, 2008
By jwn
Format:DVD
Bought this for our 2-year-old who is horse crazy, and turns out the whole family enjoyed watching it. Just a feel good movie in which a boy endures trials and triumphs on his way to success. Good messages for kids of all ages; even my 13-year-old said it wasn't bad, and our 9-year-old really liked it too.

4.0 out of 5 stars surprising June 29, 2009
By Coastie
Format:DVD
I bought this movie for my Zac Efron loving 8 yr old and thought it would be watched once and forgotten. Instead it's a nice story for young kids and you can see the budding talent of Efron, he's kind of a natural. It's a lot like the other movie he made called Miracle Run that shows he possesses a nice persona on film, and even with the gap in his teeth was a nice looking young man. My daughter enjoys this movie, though our version has a horse on the cover and not the smiling photo of Zac. If your daughter is a fan of Zac Efron it's not a big investment for your child to see him in an earlier work with no singing, dancing or Sharpay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Sweet ! September 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a very sweet movie. It is a simple story about teen years, but I think that it really delivered on how sometimes parents try to live thru there children.
The music at the end is really a GREAT song. I wish that they would have put it throughout the movie. Billy Preston really was one of the Greats!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant family film August 9, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
15-year old Patrick (Zac Efron) is new in town and has problems: He can't please his jock father and he runs afoul of the local teen bully who likes the girl Patrick likes. His only friend is a one-time horse trainer and long-time alcoholic (Bill Cobbs), who sees something special in the boy and gives him a horse.

There's no denying Efron's Tiger Beat-cuteness, and he does a fine job in an undemanding role, but if you want to see a real actor, take a look at Bill Cobbs. He's been playing small character parts in TV and movies for years, but this time he's the star and absolutely owns the screen. His craggy face and gravelly voice masterfully express the only real emotion in the film and he's a pleasure to watch.

Adults may find the story predictable and a bit bland, but the wholesome message about finding your passion and working hard for it makes "The Derby Stallion" just right for family viewing.
