The movie “50 to 1″ about the Kentucky Derby-winning horse from New Mexico will soon hit the big screen.
It tells the story of Mine That Bird, the horse owned by a Roswell group that ended up on a journey of a lifetime when Bird qualified for the Kentucky Derby.
The movie stars Skeet Ulrich and Christian Kane who are set to be at the premiere at the Kimo Theater in Albuquerque on March 19.
“50 to 1″ will be released nationwide March 21.
Mine That Bird retired a year after winning the Run for the Roses as a 50-to-1 shot four years ago.

The wind will continue today. There may also be some rain and snow showers in the afternoon. Highs will be in the 50s to lower 60s. Southern winds will come at 10 to 20 mph in the afternoon and may get as high as 40 mph.
Tonight you can expect mostly cloudy skies with a chance of rain and snow in the evening. The chance for that rain and snow will increase after midnight, possibly leaving as much as one or two inches. Low will get down to the 20s to mid 30s. Southwest winds will start at 10 miles and hour and may climb to 20 in the evening.
Have a wonderful day,

Some seriously cold air, big time winds and snow is headed our way the next few days. Snow will develop tonight over the 4-corners and slowly spread into the northern mountains during the day Wednesday. The winds will be the big players elsewhere across the state. Here in the metro winds will top 40mph at a gust. Over eastern sections winds could hit 60 mph.
By Thursday cold air will overtake the state with highs in the teens east and high 30′s in the metro. If we are going to get some snow with this system it will most likely happen early Thursday. I wouldn’t expect a lot of accumulating snow in the valley at this point but the forecast should be watched closely as this could change. Look for heavy snow to continue Thursday in the mountains.
This system will clear the state early on Friday. But yet another storm may roll in this weekend.
