Sorting through hours of footage from dozens of broadcast and cable television networks, media consultant and producer Mike Harkins worked with Jackson Family Enterprises VP of Communications Mark Osmun to produce At the Speed of Curlin , a tribute DVD of retiring champion racehorse Curlin, owned by wine magnate Jess Jackson.
The DVD, edited and designed by Harkins, includes a four-minute video highlighting racehorse Curlin's phenomenal racing career, with composer Mason Williams' long-time hit Classical Gas as sound track, and individual videos of every Curlin race. Curlin won2008 and 2009 Horse of the Year honors.
The project was followed by DVD authoring for record setting racehorse Rachel Alexandra's 2009 race season.
