Also starring in the film is rising Broadway star, Julia Nightingale who can now be seen in The Ferryman directed by Sam Mendes.

New York-based Seanie Sugrue is co-founder of Locked in the Attic Productions, and is originally from Tralee. Bertie Brosnan is also from Tralee and has been involved in the film industry in Ireland for some years starting as an actor and quickly moving into producing short films along with one feature film and several online commercials.

The film follows two Bronx Irish immigrants who make a big mistake: when asked to place a lucrative bet on the horse that gives the film its title, they instead keep the money, only to watch the horse actually win.
