Janet Vokes – Dream Horse

Janet Vokes was working behind the bar in her local working men’s club in Cefn Fforest, a small community where hope was dwindling with the closure of mines across the UK. After an overheard conversation, she fixed upon the idea of breeding a racehorse.

The story of Dream Alliance, a horse raised by a woman who had only previously raised pigeons and dogs, is so compelling that it got made into a film, Dark Horse, winner of the World Cinema Documentary Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. In Janet’s new book, Dream Horse, readers can experience in greater detail the real-life fairy tale of a Welsh barmaid who took on the ‘Sport of Kings’.
