On January 8, 2012, elite jockey, Garrett Gomez, fractured his left heel bone. We were hired by HRTV to document his recovery and follow him to the Kentucky Derby: 118 days in all. Of course, we couldn’t actually be with Garrett all those days, but we shot over three months and somehow managed to squeeze that into a 26 min program.
The result is a beautiful and intimate look at an athlete at the top of his game determined to stay on the top.
