Okay, I just saw 8 Below and really enjoyed it. Except for the Leopard Seal. Anyway, I recently also saw Dreamer. Both movies say inspired by a true story - I really want to know what these true stories are?? I searched and searched for any kind of story about a horse winning the Breeder's Cup that had been previously injured - nothing. I'm sure I won't find anything on 8 below either.
So, what does inspired by a true story really mean? Any thoughts?
