A Documentary by Trevor Velin, 2010
Quick! What’s the only sport indigenous to Colorado? That’s right: pack-burro racing, in which competitors lead (not ride) their burro companions along mountainous paths. The pace of individual competitors can range from a flat-out run to a stand-still (stubborn as a __), but it’s certainly a physically demanding competition in high altitude.
This documentary follows Curtis Imrie, an old-time racer who returns annually, driven by a passion for the sport and the community; Roger Pedretti, who travels from Lacrosse, Wisconsin to carry the torch of a family legacy; and Hal Walter, a family man with a true talent for the sport who is still discovering what burro racing truly means to him. They compete for the “other” Triple Crown of racing.
