'50-1′, the movie based upon Mine That Bird's improbable victory in the 2009 Kentucky Derby, finally has a release date – March 21, 2014.
Jim Wilson, who directed the movie, will be self-distributing the film through his Ten Furlongs production company, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. Wilson also co-wrote the script, which chronicles Mine That Bird and his New Mexico-based connections on their journey to Churchill Downs in 2009.
The movie will have its world premiere at the KiMo Theatre in Albuquerque, N.M., on March 19, before being released on a limited basis two days later.
