"50 to 1" is a 2014 biographical sports drama film that tells the true story of the 2009 Kentucky Derby winner, Mine That Bird. Directed by Jim Wilson, the movie stars Skeet Ulrich, Christian Kane, and William Devane. The film follows the journey of an unlikely team of cowboys and their racehorse as they defy the odds to become the underdogs that shocked the racing world.

The movie begins with the introduction of Mark Allen (played by Skeet Ulrich), a New Mexico-based cowboy who, along with his friend and trainer, Chip Woolley (played by Christian Kane), acquires an underperforming racehorse named Mine That Bird. The horse is not expected to go far in the racing world and is ranked at 50 to 1 odds.

Despite the many obstacles that they face, including a lack of funding and setbacks during training, the team's determination and belief in their horse lead them to enter Mine That Bird in the 2009 Kentucky Derby. Against all odds, they soon realize that they are going to have to fight every step of the way to make their dream a reality.

The story then takes the audience on a thrilling and emotional journey as the team navigates the highly competitive world of horse racing. Despite being seen as the underdogs, they remain steadfastly committed to their goal of winning the Kentucky Derby. Along the way, they forge friendships and alliances, but they also encounter opposition from opponents who are more powerful and better connected.

As the Kentucky Derby draws closer, tensions begin to rise, and the team must confront their inner demons and overcome their fears if they are to realize their dream. The film builds to a powerful climax, as Mine That Bird and his riders make an epic charge down the final stretch of the horse-racing track.

The movie is noteworthy for its attention to detail, capturing the essence of the horse-racing world in its portrayal of the challenges faced by both the riders and the horses. It is also a highly compelling story about the power of perseverance and the importance of having faith in oneself, and it is a pitch-perfect tribute to the sport of horse racing.

The film's outstanding cast features the likes of Skeet Ulrich, who delivers a strong and grounded performance as Mark Allen, the tormented cowboy who refuses to give up on his dream. Christian Kane, who portrays Chip Woolley, the trainer who helps him make it a reality, perfectly captures the essence of a man who is both passionate and determined.

William Devane plays the role of veteran racing-circuit journalist, Leonard Doc, who provides a counterbalance to the high stakes and emotive drama that the team faces, offering an objective glimpse into the world of horse racing.

Overall, "50 to 1" is an outstanding movie that will appeal to anyone who loves a story of overcoming adversity and triumphing against the odds.
