A traveling circus accidentally leaves behind a baby zebra. The baby is then rescued by horse farmer Nolan Walsh, who takes him home to his young daughter Channing. "Stripes" is soon introduced to the farm's misfit troupe of barnyard residents. The Walsh farm borders the Turfway Racetrack, where highly skilled thoroughbreds compete for the ultra-prestigious Kentucky Crown. From the first moment Stripes lays eyes on the track, he's hooked. He knows that if he could just get a chance, he could leave all those other horses in the dust. What he doesn't know is - he's not exactly a horse. But with characteristic zeal, he devotes himself to training for the big time

Good: Racing Stripes (2005) *** 102 min. starring Hayden Panettiere (from Heroes), Bruce Greenwood (he played the President in National Treasure 2), Frankie Muniz (voice of Stripes who played Malcolm in the Middle) – This is a very good family film with good messages all around about the importance of being special and being proud of who you are. The story revolves around a zebra who thinks he’s a race horse with all the predictable outcomes that come from such underdog pictures. For all “Heroes” fans, it’ll be a treat watching Hayden Panettiere in one of her first live action leading starring roles in a major motion picture – surprisingly, she voiced characters in Bug’s Life and Disney’s Dinosaur. The supporting characters like Dustin Hoffman as the seasoned veteran horse providing wisdom to our zebra hero and the flies, for comedic relief, are fun to watch.
