Racing Stripes DVD Review
If you liked Babe, you'll love Racing Stripes! Featuring loveable animals, hilarious jokes and an all-star cast, this is one movie you won't want to miss.
Racing Stripes - Life in the Fast Lane
When a baby zebra named Stripes (voiced by Frankie Muniz) is accidentally left behind by a traveling circus, Nolan Walsh (played by Bruce Greenwood) rescues him and takes him home. Nolan, a former horse trainer, and his daughter live quietly on their farm, which lies next to the Turfway Racetrack. The minute Stripes lays eyes on the racing horses, he dreams of becoming the fastest horse in Kentucky - the problem is, he doesn't realize he's a zebra!
Racing Stripes - Overcoming Obstacles
All the barnyard animals quickly make Stripes feel at home, and even encourage him to race. But, he runs into obstacles when the horses, especially Trenton's Pride (voiced by Joshua Jackson from Dawson's Creek), make fun of the little zebra, who's stripes make him an outcast. However, Stripes' confidence is boosted when he meets Sandy, voiced by the oh-so-sweet Mandy Moore, who teaches him to believe in himself and follow his dreams.
