Production Year 1979
Synopsis Nach einem Schiffbruch stranden der mutige Junge Alec und der “Schwarze”, ein wilder Araberhengst, allein auf einer einsamen Insel. Während ihres abenteuerlichen Überlebenskampfes entsteht eine tiefe Freundschaft zwischen den beiden. Nach ihrer Rettung gehen ihre gemeinsamen Abenteuer weiter: Sie lernen den früheren Jockey und Pferdetrainer Henry Dailey kennen. Er bemerkt sofort das Potential dieser Gemeinschaft zwischen Mensch und Tier, zwischen dem hoch entwickelten Instinkt des Hengstes und der unerschütterlichen Hingabe des Jungen. Gemeinsam beginnen sie mit dem Training für das Jahrhundertrennen der weltbesten Vollblüter.
