You’re invited to an advance screening of this forthcoming documentary on March 31 to benefit the Maker’s Mark Secretariat Center.
WHAT | Special Advanced Screening of Harry & Snowman
Harry & Snowman is the soon to be released, award-winning documentary that tells the remarkable life story of international show jumping legend Harry deLeyer, whose career was launched by his famous show jumping horse Snowman.
Snowman was an old Amish plow horse that Harry rescued off a truck that was bound for the meat and glue factory for only $80. Less than two years after he rescued Snowman, they rose to become the national show jumping champions and were the Cinderella story and media darlings of late 1950s and 1960s.
Very few horse stories have been able to truly touch the hearts of a nation. Red Pollard & Seabiscuit did in the 1930s, Harry deLeyer & Snowman did it in the 1950s and then Ron Turcotte & Secretariat were the last to do it in the 1970s. Harry & Snowman will be the first time that Harry’s remarkable and heartfelt life story will be told by 85-year-old Harry himself.
