Our guest tonight is Victoria Racimo, director of One Day, a film chronicling the life of racing champion Our Mims and the Thoroughbred retirement sanctuary that bears her name; The film is an Official Selection in the upcoming Equus Film Festival in NYC, November 20 - 22. This film was previewed at the American Equine Summit at the Equine Advocates sanctuary, and there wasn't a dry eye in the house.
Produced by Palomino Entertainment Group, TanNa Young, Editor and Executive Producer, One Day wove the career and subsequent life of 1977 Champion 3-Year-Old Filly Our Mims with that of Our Mims Thoroughbred Retirement Haven founder Jeanne Mirabito. Maribito fell in love with the race filly after watching her racing on television, and made a “cosmic claim” on the filly, vowing that one day she would own her.
Twenty-one years later, in the back field of a cattle farm that Mirabito was working on, the two were brought together and formed a bond that eventually saw Mirabito owning the mare and starting a retirement sanctuary for broodmares and the occasional gelding in Paris, Kentucky.
