Born to Rein film showing and reception

“Born to Rein” film showing and reception: Featuring the life of Nebraska horsemen and Hall of Fame members John A. Nerud and father-and-son Marion and Jack Van Berg. Nerud, a Navy veteran and one of America’s most accomplished and revered thoroughbred trainers and breeders, co-founded the prestigious Breeders’ Cup. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1972. Marion Van Berg was the nation’s leading owner in racing victories 14 times and was the first Nebraskan inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1970. Like his father, Jack Van Berg set numerous records and was inducted into the Hall of Fame. His best horse, Alysheba, won the 1987 Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Breeders’ Cup Classic, and was Horse of the Year in 1988. “Born to Rein” will also commemorate the 100th anniversary of America’s first Triple Crown Winner, Sir Barton, as the documentary film will pay homage to his time as an U.S. Army Remount Service Stallion at Fort Robinson near Crawford, Nebraska. Time: 6:30 p.m. Cost: $10 for Museum members, $12 non-members.
