An ageing jockey, hopes to win one last title for his long-time trainer, who has acquired what appears to be a championship horse. But the years - and injuries - have taken a toll on his body, throwing into question his ability to continue his lifelong passion. And the arrival of a young rookie rider, who claims to be his son, and whom he takes under his wing, further complicates the path to fulfilling his dream.
Instilled with an immediately engaging realism by filmmakers Clint Bentley and Greg Kwedar, Jockey takes audiences inside the backside of racetrack life in a way no other film has. Filmed at a live racetrack in Arizona, and featuring real jockeys, Jockey reveals the true rider experience - real life, behind the track.
