    One of the best movies I have seen in years. Very well done for first time filmmakers. Well edited and full of rich characters. Even it you are not into horses or racing, you will enjoy it

    THEN RUN, NOT WALK, RUN TO SEE 'SATURDAY'!!And, don't let the fact that it may not be playing nearby put you off!!If you love horse racing, or even just have a passing interest because of races like the DERBY, you will be thoroughly mesmorized by this terrific film .. .. As in all walks of life, it's the people that make the story - even in a flick about racing .. .. You'll be able to see and feel why once who are involved in the 'beautiful life', you'll never imagine another way to live .. .. GET TO THE RACES -- TODAY
