In “A Horse for Danny,” Danny is a little girl who lives with her uncle and has become a near-professional horse gambler. She speaks the language of the betting world so well that if you aren’t familiar with horse racing, you may be a little lost at times! The movie was very clean with just one scene where a man punches another man who is trying to sabotage a race.
The gambling issue is a main theme of the movie, but the racing scene is the only environment Danny has ever known. Robert Urich does a great job playing a struggling uncle who does his best to raise a niece who is much older than her years. “A Horse for Danny” earns the Dove Seal for family-friendly viewing.
