In 2000, a Welsh bartender named Janet Vokes had an idea: She would rally members of her poor mining community to pitch in and purchase a racehorse. Locals obliged, contributing 10 pounds a week to breed and train the magnificent beast they named Dream Alliance. The thoroughbred and his working-class owners beat the odds to break into the aristocratic world of horse racing, where the equine defied expectations by coming in fourth in his first race. Dark Horse, Louise Osmond’s award-winning documentary chronicling the rags-to-riches story, kicks off the seventh annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series at Billings Farm & Museum.
