The movie’s first run will be out in the spring of 2015.

The idea of making a film about “Kincsem” – “My Treasure,”  was born one day before the sunrise at dawn about five years ago  these were Mr,  Losonczi beginning words at the press conference at  the recent International Press Conference, held at the “Kincsem” Horse Racing Park – Budapest.

The movie is on the road in the  stage of preperation.The film’s script is by Mr. Géza Bereményi. The playwright Mr. Géza Szőcs, poet and Chief adviser to the prime minister who said, quote: the history of the one-time wonder horse can help to overcome the desire and knowledge to become important again in the Hungarian psyche. Mr. Gábor Losonci, the producer informed the press and media representatives, about the film as to be a joint co-production with British, Russian, German, Austrian and American team. Concerning the rolls, there will be six Hungarian main characters, and soon the casting will start. Two Academy  Award-winning actors (no names out), including the director from the overseas, United States of America. Even though we all at present were anxious to hear the names filling the casts, it  seemed to be early to get the answer. As we were told … “Until the contract is signed – sealed delivered  the secret remains a secret who are to come to join  shoting.the movie. “He also pointed out by „winning” the American stars, it will most probably tickle  the movie lovers to see what they are up to in this superb background history of  “Kincsem”, the wonder horse . Expecting to have a big audience to see  the movie.  Last, but not least the producer talked about the role to play “Kincsem” – My Treasure  as to be a tough job to exactly find the same  horse outside endowments.  He continued, saying the will be three horses just outside the stable. “Why three horses? Many may ask… we need to be sure to shoot the movie by not taking any chances, whether the horse is fit, reliable, energetic and just like the humans to count on having different temper and many other circumstances should be kept in mind.  So … the horses will go through the casting procedure as well. In Hungarian language, the horse is called  “Ló” by pronouncing the word would stand in English language  “Low” … i.e. the Horses will go through the “Low Casting” procedure. Yes, the words have different meaning, depending what language it is spoken, interesting  in sence of coincidences.  So, the crew will shop around in Europe, for the proper horse also visiting Baden-Baden. The producer also talked about the background remuneration of the two American actors and director, calculated budget and stated that the three fame make up half of the budget. Mr. Losonci also talked about the production costs He said, they are not taking advantage government support, nor from the Hungarian National Film Fund to provide the necessary resources. Most of the support are coming from the ground of entrepreneurs and investors.

At the press gathering we also found out why a question marks stood beside  Ms. Fanni Weisz’s name, the former beauty queen of Hungary.  The producer  revealed the answer to the question by saying Ms. Fanni Weisz will be the Goodwill Ambassador,  and also will play a role in the movie.  Ms.Elena Drapeko, Russian actress, first deputy chairman of the Duma Culture Committee, will also be in the movie as the Kincsem’s trainer as playing his wife. We found out one Hungarian actors Mr. Sándor Oszter, who for sure will be a superb role in the movie.

Also held  a ride on honor by  young talented  horseriders at the Kincsem Park and the goblets seen on the snaps were the prize for the first 3 winners.

Now about “KIncsem”, My Treasure, the wonder mare (CV) in a nutshell …

Many horse race lovers around the Globe have had probably heard about “Kincsem” –  My Treasure,  the wonder mare who was born on March, 17. 1874. The world-famous Hungarian horse raced 54 times and won all then races. “Kincsem” –  My Treasure career began quite early at the age of two years, her  trainer was Mr. Robert Hesp who use to live in England, and later come over to Göd – Hungary (outside area at Budapest). The racehorse was admired during its races while traveling half of Europe. Unfortunately, the discovering of joint injuries worn it out from racing at the age of six. thereafter, it  became a breeding mare, and had been taken to  Tápiószentmárton.  “Kincsem”  – My Treasure – passed away March, 17. 1887.

In the history of horseracing there hasn’t been a horse  who came even close to be as many occasions to be the champion like the “Kincsem” – My Treasure, who also achieved making the whole Hungarian racehorse breeding  to gain to be world-famous.
