Once a foal starts coming, it usually pops right out. But that is not the case when a big, gangly foal is ready to enter the world in 1989. After Rowdy Irishman is finally born with help from a vet, he grows into a freak of nature because of his gigantic feet, plain bay color, and long ears. When his owner realizes the horse is not built for flat-track racing, he practically gives him away to farmer, Chet Goodwin. Three years later, Rowdy's record is seventeen starts with no wins and Goodwin's financial circumstances are dire. After Goodwin sells Rowdy for a mere fifteen hundred dollars to new owners, Rowdy and his trainers embark on an unforgettable journey that leads the horse to defeat all odds and begin a glorious ride to become a steeplechase legend known for his determination, stamina, and ability to shrug off defeat. Rowdy Irishman is the inspirational story of a steeplechase race horse who proves that passion, heart, and soul are all he needs to succeed.
