Movie Review: Lost In The Fog Movie Review: Lost In The Fog

Last night I attended a screening of "Lost in the Fog" at the Saratoga Film Forum. You have one more chance to see this wonderful documentary today, Sunday, Aug. 3 at 7:00 PM. If you like horses, horse racing, and a good story, you won't want to miss this film.

"Lost in the Fog" follows the story of champion racehorse Lost in the Fog, winner of Saratoga's 2005 King's Bishop Stakes race and the 2005 Eclipse winner. But it's not just about horse racing. It's about the people who guided and loved this horse. Through a series of unlikely events, Harry Aleo finds his life's dream when he is given the opportunity to own his "big horse." The film is as much a story of this extraordinary man, a curmudgeonly old coot from northern California who just has a love of horses. Amazingly, this wonderful horse takes Harry on the ride of his life. Winner of the 2005 Eclipse Award as racings top horse of that year, Lost In The Fog embodies what a great horse is all about. The film features scenes shot at Saratoga Race Course.

Director John Corey was on-hand for a talk-back session. It's always a treat when you have the opportunity to speak with the filmmaker. Sunday night's showing will not have John on hand, but I highly recommend this film to anyone who loves animals, especially horses. "Lost in the Fog" won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2008 Cinevegas Film Festival. More information at

Sunday, August 3rd, 7:00PM only

Thanks so much for coming to the screening and for the kind words about the film. Please let me know if I can ever be of service. By the way, if people are interested, I hope to have the DVD for sale in the winter.
