Series Summary
A three-year stay in federal prison has given Chester "Ace" Bernstein plenty of time to think, and what he devises upon his release is a revenge plot against the colleagues who betrayed him. With the help of his trusted bodyguard and driver, Gus, who acts as a front for his race horse investment, Ace seeks to reverse the sad-sack fortunes of a famous racetrack. A key to the plan is held by Turo Escalante, a talented self-made trainer with a questionable character, who takes on the job of training Ace's colt. The series, from "Deadwood" creator David Milch and director Michael Mann, stars Dustin Hoffman as Ace, Dennis Farina as Gus and Nick Nolte as veteran trainer-turned-owner Walter Smith. The cast also includes Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens, who plays a grizzled rider with a love for Jack Daniels.
