Gio Ponti IV - The Return of a Champion

Do you enjoy non-stop action and spine-tingling excitement??? How about heart stopping thrills or cliffhanging finishes???

Coming Soon to a neighborhood theatre … Gio Ponti IV - The Return of a Champion! Sure to be one of the can’t miss films of 2010, our equine hero is back one more time to thrill audiences everywhere. Rarely do sequels out do the original, but in the Gio Ponti series each movie outshines the one before. If you only see a few movies next year, Gio Ponti IV - The Return of a Champion, must be one of them!!!

Starring - Gio Ponti

Co-Starring - Ramon Dominguez

Director - Christophe Clement

Producers - Tale of the Cat & Chipeta Springs

Executive Producer - Castleton Lyons

Release Date - January 1, 2010

Here is a brief recap of the first three films, in case you missed one second of the spellbinding saga:

In the original, Gio Ponti - The Beginning, the world fell in love with Gio for good, as they followed him from his early training days with Christophe Clement, to his triumphant victory at first asking, to his impressive stakes win in only his second start, and to finally, his heartbreaking and unlucky journey in the 2007 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf. A wonderful story, but more was to unfold…

The second in the series, Gio Ponti II - Undiscovered Worlds, left audiences everywhere on the edge of their seats and wanting more. Gio traveled from one coast to the other, delighting his fans with thrilling finishes. He racked up victories in the Hill Prince and the Virginia Derby and narrow defeats in the Del Mar Derby and the Jamaica. His troubled trip in the Hollywood Derby brought the audience to tears. Gio Ponti’s final performance was a foreshadowing of things to come as he made his initial foray on to a synthetic surface with a scintillating score in Santa Anita’s Sir Beaufort Stakes. This film brought moviegoers to their collective feet, but also, only wanting and needing more and that is exactly what they got…

Fans of the series were brought to screams of joy, laughter, tears, and waves of thunderous ovations as 'Gio Ponti III - Your Surface or Mine?' hit the theatres this past January. Gio Ponti added to his legend with powerful and consecutive victories in the Kilroe Mile, Manhattan, Man o' War and Arlington Million. All of these races were of the Grade 1 variety, only furthering Gio’s box office appeal. The four-year-old heartthrob took the role of tragic hero quite well as he transferred his talents to the Pro-Ride surface of this year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic, running a bang-up 2nd to Supermare Zenyatta. Academy Awards are sure to follow. Surely this was to be the swan song, but no, he will be back!

Want a little teaser for Gio Ponti IV - The Return of a Champion? The borders of the United States will no longer be big enough to contain our hero as he will travel half way across the globe to compete in the 10 million dollar Dubai World Cup. How exciting does that sound?

Get you tickets early, this is sure to be one wild ride!
