While competing and winning or placing in many races, it’s the journey to the Kentucky Derby and it’s win that caught the world’s attention. An owner of Mine that Bird, Mark Allen, will be portrayed by actor – singer Christian Kane (Leverage, Hide, Her Minor Thing), while Skeet Ulrich (Jerico, Law and Order L.A., Into the West) has been cast as the horse’s trainer, Chip Woolley.
