The acclaimed documentary, On The Muscle: Portrait of a Thoroughbred Racing Stable, which recently earned Pony Highway Productions and HorseRacing TV a national television media Eclipse award, will re-air Jan. 23 at 6 p.m. (ET) on HRTV.
It originally aired on HRTV on three occasions in late February and early March of 2006.
The three-hour documentary, which chronicled a year inside the stable of Hall of Fame trainer Richard Mandella, will re-air in its entirety, and commercial-free, one day after being awarded the Eclipse award at the 36th annual Eclipse Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The documentary, which was produced by Robin Rosenthal and Bill Yahraus of Pony Highway Productions, featured individual stories on six horses under Mandella's tutelage: Pleasantly Perfect, Redattore, Kudos, Ile de France, Brisquette, and The Tin Man.
It took viewers behind-the-scenes at the Southern California tracks, documenting the emotional rollercoaster of these six horses. It culminates with Mandella's astonishing and unprecedented four-win day at the 2003 Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita.
