, the against-the-odds story of a broken-down horse and his similarly decrepit jockey, is the second of two family-friendly, equine-themed films to screen at Belle Meade Plantation's Barn Door Drive-In. (National Velvet
played last week.) When the film goes up on the outside wall of the historic horse barn, it will be a home-movie of sorts for the Plantation. The 200-year-old farm once encompassed some 5,400 acres in the Belle Meade neighborhood and produced famous thoroughbreds whose speedy bloodlines trickled down to racetrack luminaries including Seabiscuit and Barbaro. Part of the Plantation's yearlong bicentennial celebration, the free event starts at 7 p.m. on Thursday. There will also be children's games and box dinners available for purchase from Martha's at the Plantation.
