Item description

On DVD or VHS: Adjectives such as "legendary" and "incomparable" are often misused in the sporting lexicon but they are barely adequate to describe the career of horse trainer, Vincent O'Brien. Voted by his peers in 1999 as the greatest National Hunt trainer of the 20th Century, O'Brien was simultaneously voted the greatest Flat trainer of the century. When the Racing Post conducted a poll in 2003 to ascertain the greatest figure in the history of horse racing, O'Brien was again triumphant, this time defeating his celebrated protégé, Lester Piggott, by an overwhelming margin. Following an incredible record at Cheltenham, O'Brien's feat of three Aintree Grand Nationals with three different horses in three consecutive years would be incredible to behold in the 21st Century. O'Brien's Grand National record has never been broken. In fact, it is unlikely to ever be even neared. After having nothing left to prove on the jumps, O'Brien set his sights on the flats and was an instant success with magnificent horses such as BALLYMOSS, LARKSPUR, SIR IVOR, NIJINSKY II, THE MINSTREL and ROYAL ACADEMY. See very rare home movie footage of Vincent O'Brien in Canada setting his eyes for the very first time on the now legendary NIJINSKY II - he was there to inspect a RIBOT colt but passed on him when he was smitten with NIJINSKY II. This outstanding feature provides a unique insight into why Vincent O'Brien is universally regarded as the greatest-ever figure in the history of horse racing. Containing never-before-seen footage and interviews in a story told at a cracking pace with passion, vision, and humor, "The Master" is the definitive portrayal of the man whose constant quest for perfection revolutionized the racing and breeding industries around the world. It highlights how Vincent O'Brien overcame the barriers of meager resources, the jealousy of the horse racing establishment, and a culture of mediocrity to create a towering legacy which placed Ireland at the epicenter of the racing world. This documentary captures the genius of Vincent O'Brien and traces a story of humble beginnings in Ireland to the icon that became Vincent O'Brien and is the ultimate testament to the life and work of this unique visionary and master of his craft. Using unseen footage of O'Brien and his horses, this documentary will be of fascination not only to horse racing followers but to fans of sport around the world. 55 Minutes. Thanks for looking.
