This serie recounts the key moments in the history of horse racing. This epic series unveils three great passions of equestrian sport: the love of horses, sports and gambling.

The series illustrates the Golden Age of harness racing at the time when tens of thousands of fans crowded every night race track stands. The drivers, coaches and horses were among the best in North America. It also puts into light: the adrenaline rush of drivers, reveals the lives of farmers, the game fever of gambling, the anguish of an auction, the disappointment of defeat and euphoria of victory. It is far from the good old days, but this phenomenon persists today because as long as there are horses, and as long as there are men, there will be races!
