Racing Stripes is a 2005 American family film directed by Frederik Du Chau. It is similar in the style to the 1995 movie Babe, in that the protagonist is a talking animal who lives on a farm and succeeds at an activity not expected of his species. It was filmed in Pietermaritzburg and Nottingham Road, South Africa.In a rush to pack up during a thunderstorm, the Circus Sarano (a traveling circus) accidentally leaves behind a baby zebra. The foal is rescued by Nolan Walsh, a former Thoroughbred-racehorse trainer who retired when his wife Carolyn, a jockey, died in a racing accident a few years ago. Nolan takes the zebra home to his farm and leaves it under the care of his daughter Channing, who names him "Stripes". Stripes befriends the other farmyard animals, including elderly goat Franny, dim-witted rooster Reggie, and grumpy Shetland pony Tucker, who try to educate him about life on the farm, but he becomes convinced that he is destined for the nearby racetrack, the Kentucky Open, not realizing that he is a zebra and is not qualified to race. At a fence next to the racetrack, Stripes meets two horse foals training to race; Trenton's Pride and Ruffshodd. At first, they have fun playing with Stripes but out of the stables, Trenton's Pride's father, Sir Trenton, a racehorse champion, isn't pleased to see his son and friend playing with a zebra; stating that "if he's going to be a champion, he should start acting like one."An abandoned zebra (voice of Frankie Muniz) grows up believing he is a racehorse, and, with the help of his barnyard friends and a teenage girl (Hayden Panettiere), sets out to achieve his dream of racing with thoroughbreds.
