2005 combination of live-action humans and FX-assisted talking animals (though like Babe and Charlotte's Web the latter never talk to the former). A circus truck loses a baby zebra near the farm of a widowed former trainer (Bruce Greenwood) and his teenage daughter Channing (Hayden Panettiere, in one of her several sports-related roles); the zebra, named Stripes (voiced by Hayden's brother Jansen initially, by Frankie Muniz for the rest of the movie), grows up believing he's a horse and wants to race (hence the title). On his side are a Shetland pony (voice of Dustin Hoffman) who's helped groom many successful horses, a sassy goat (voice of Whoopi Goldberg), and a pair of comic-relief flies (voices of David Spade and Steve Harvey). Not on his side are most of the real horses, especially champion Sir Trenton and his son Trenton's Pride (voices of Fred Dalton Thompson and Joshua Jackson).

Meanwhile, Channing wants to follow in her late mother's footsteps and become a jockey, but her dad doesn't want her to do so as that was what resulted in her mother becoming late to begin with (and in his giving up the sport of kings). Can our two diminutive heroes overcome adversity to triumph at the Kentucky Open?

Tropes used in Racing Stripes include:
