For The Love Of Horses
For the Love of Horses tells the compelling story of the Attard family, the most prolific horse racing family in Canada. The documentary illustrates how the invincible spirit of four penniless and uneducated brothers propels them to thrive in the highly competitive and demanding sport.
"For the Love of Horses is an expressively moving, family story of loyalty, determination and accomplishment," commented Madeline Ziniak, National Vice President, OMNI Television.
With stables at Woodbine Race Track, brothers, Joe, Tino, Sid, Larry and their children, play over-lapping roles in all aspects of the industry. They begin as pony boy, breaker, hot walker and groomer, and advance to horse owner, trainer, jockey and breeder. As their dream of becoming the first Maltese Canadian family in Canadian thoroughbred horse racing comes true, their devotion to the Maltese Community and their gratitude to Canada is shown.
