Starting Gate Pictures shot the 2nd Unit horse racing footage at the Santa Anita Racetrack. The footage was cut together with mock scenes to capture the tone and mood of the story.

In addition to the 35mm horse racing footage, this trailer also combines digital video, “temp” music and other movie clips that will not be incorporated in the final film. The actors who appear in the trailer are not the “name talents” Starting Gate intends to hire for its lead roles. Most of the horse racing scenes, however, have been edited from the high resolution, high quality footage that will be featured in the full-length version of Trifecta.
