The Las Vegas Film Festival will present the documentary "Arabian Silk: Horses of Endurance" with the Golden Ace Award on Sunday, June 6th 2010. Christine Lazzarini, Producer, will be at the Closing Night Awards Ceremony to accept the award. Festival judges issued this statement: "Our judges felt that your film demonstrated superior and standout filmmaking and is deserving of special recognition."
Arabian Silk is a heart-warming and intriguing film which inspects the fastest growing equestrian discipline of Endurance Horse Racing. The story follows Roger, an endurance
horse, through his life of racing and illuminates the powerful friendship between
him and his rider, Jerry. The sport has been described as arduous and painful,
as well as pleasant and fulfilling. At its most grueling, Endurance Racing
demands a horse and rider to go 100 miles in under 24 hours. With only few
mandatory breaks for rest, racers endure seemingly endless hours of hard
riding under the desert sun during the day and courageously trek through the
ominous darkness of pitch-black night. The purity of the connection between
horse and rider is poignant and inspiring, as you watch the bond strengthen into
deep, touching friendship as they go through trial and triumph.
