Join BORN TO REIN co-producers, Jody L. Lamp and Melody Dobson of American Doorstop Project Productions, LLC for the “Triple Crown Series” launch of their documentary film, which pays tribute to the legends of America’s Oldest Sport — in time to strategically precede the last weekend of racing at FONNER PARK; and the first leg of Thoroughbred Horse Racing’s Triple Crown – the Kentucky Derby!

The BORN TO REIN documentary film honors the lives and careers of native Nebraskans and National Hall of Fame Trainers – John Nerud of Minatare; and father-and-son trainers, Marion Van Berg and Jack Van Berg of Columbus – and how their horsemanship continues to impact and influence the national thoroughbred industry today. The timing of the documentary coincides with 100th Anniversary Year of America’s First Triple Crown Winner, Sir Barton, who after retiring from racing also spent time in Nebraska, as a U.S. Army Remount Service Stallion at Fort Robinson near Crawford, NE.
