    It takes more than winning to be a hero in sports history. Gearing up for the Breeders Cup in the fall, Lionsgate Home Entertainment's The Cup races to DVD and Digital Download October 16. Brendan Gleeson (Albert Nobbs) and Stephen Curry (Rogue) star in this inspirational true horseracing story about triumph over adversity and a family that overcame incredible odds to win the 2002 Melbourne Cup trophy. The DVD includes a behind-the-scenes featurette "The Making of The Cup" and will be available for the suggested retail price of $26.98.


    At the heart of this true story is Damien Oliver (Curry), a young jockey who loses his only brother in a tragic racing accident just days before the Melbourne Cup. The race fall is a haunting reflection of the way their father died 27 years earlier. After suffering through a series of discouraging defeats, Damien teams with Irish trainer Dermot Weld (Gleeson), and triumphs at the 2002 Melbourne Cup in one of the most thrilling finales in sporting history.
