won a bid to produce the new film for the park, which is scheduled
for debut in late 2003. In All Its Glory will replace the classic,
but aging production Thou Shalt Fly Without Wings, the park's
current film, which has been shown for over twenty-five years.
The Kentucky Horse Park's importance to our industry and our region
is well known. The film may influence over 800,000 park visitors
and future industry participants each year. It is an exciting
venture for Hammond to complete production on this showcase piece.
the next few weeks, Hammond will be looking for a local foaling
scene to shoot and is relying on the cooperation of some of the
area Thoroughbred farms. The crew will also be out and about at
many local and national events over the next several months finalizing
filming of different equine disciplines such as Eventing, Dressage,
Show Jumping, Reining, Racing and Driving.
