Indian Relay is Thoroughbred Racing to the extreme. Tribes have been competing in Relay for well over 100 years and the roots of Relay go back many centuries. In recent years the sport has been gaining popularity and has come to major racetracks including Canterbury Park in Minnesota and Emerald Downs in Washington. This special recaps this past June’s Muckleshoot Gold Cup at Emerald Downs and includes behind the scenes footage and interviews.

The Love of the Game highlights interviews and draws on themes of the ongoing connection to culture,  and the continual importance and presence of Indian relay in contemporary Native communities way of life.
