    Emilio Estevez to make movie about Harness Racing

    About friggin time this happened- Give em hell Coach Bombay!

    http://news.cincinnati.com/article/2...cing-film-here

    Emilio Estevez will shoot a “family film” about harness racing here next year.

    I did some digging around the web and saw that Estevez earlier this year posted on his Twitter account that his “next project shoots in Ohio, where both my folks are from, set in the competitive world of harness racing.” (He’s the son of actor Martin Sheen, born in Dayton, Ohio.)

    He told Flicksandbits:

    “I love sports movies and I want to create another family franchise. There’s “Secretariat” and “Seabiscuit,” so people are familiar with thoroughbreds, but standard-breds are a different animal and serve a different purpose. The whole sport is very familial, the kids and wives are involved, and it’s also international. So, potentially, it’s a franchise that starts in the US and you can take your team to Australia, France, and other places where they race. It could be a lot of a fun and it’s a sport that we haven’t seen on screen.”

    Estevez, who's also the brother of Charlie Sheen, will announce details of what's being called a ”family-friendly sports film” at a press conference today at 3 p.m. at the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum.

    Estevez will be joined by Kristen Erwin, executive director of the Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky Film Commission, Mayor Mark Mallory and Gail Mezey from the Ohio Film Commission.

    He’d have a choice of three race tracks here: River Downs in Anderson Township, Turfway Park in Florence and Lebanon Raceway in Warren County, the only harness-racing track of the three.

    The New York native wrote and directed “The Way,” starring his father, last year. His break-out acting role was in ”The Breakfast Club” in 1985. He played Coach Bombay in “The Mighty Ducks” movies.

    It's also extremely cruel to the animals involved. But who gives a **** about them, right?

    It is with the cart. Meadowlands, Yonkers, and Chester are all Harness tracks.

    Those races support the horse population in America and those animals are treated very well for the most part. They are bread to be racers and are worth a lot of money. This is not like dog racing the racing associations regulate the farms very well. You want to see mistreated horses walk down Independence Ave in Philly.

    Now that's some funny sh!t. Funnier if it's true.
    As for Harness racing.... works as a comedy with drinking and whores but as a family flick
