    "Casey's Shadow" is a funny and touching story for the whole family about a cranky, impoverished horse trainer, Lloyd Bourdelle (Walter Matthau) and his three sons. When the oldest son is sent off to buy a quarter horse, he brings back, instead an old pregnant mare, explaining that she has superb bloodlines. The mare gives birth to a colt that grows into a strong, promising racehorse. Bourdelle sees it is an opportunity to show up his old rivals and make some money in the process. But just as Bourdelle is about to enter the horse in a million-dollar race its front leg is seriously injured. In spite of the vet's warning and his son's violent objections, Bourdelle enters the horse anyway. A bittersweet, poignant conclusion is sure to make Casey's Shadow a family favorite!
