A drama/thriller movie called “Thoroughbreds” that was shot in part in Wellesley in 2016 and includes a horse owned by a Wellesley family will hit theaters this week. The movie debuted at the Sundance Film Festival more than a year ago.
There’s not a lot in the trailer to suggest why the movie is called Thoroughbreds, but we do know that the Lowe family’s Odin Impetuous Lowe shows up in a flashback scene.
Odin, which is the stage name that the horse goes by, even has an IMDB page. From that site: “He is hoping to get a part in a police action movie, as he is friends with Mike, the Department of Conservation and Recreation Park Ranger horse.”
Alistair Lowe says the quarter horse belongs to daughter Bec, who graduated from Wellesley High and has been active in theatre. Odin, Lowe says, has not let the movie role go to his head.
Still, the family will not be taking the horse to a screening.
