Alec (Kelly Reno), now a teen, lives with his mother mother (Teri Garr, phoning in a cameo) and the Black (the horse Cass Ole, returning as well from the first film). The stallion's original owners seek to reclaim the Black, restore his original name Shetan, and provide for him in Morocco. Inevitably a struggle ensues between Alec, who manages to sneak into Morocco, and original owner Ishak (Ferdy Mayne). Much like the original film, this all leads to a big race but the events that get us there feel a bit mechanical. If nothing else, the internationally-shot scenery looks beautiful and Cass Ole is a pleasure to watch in full stride.
Technical presentation is solid, with only a few, occasional speckles of light print debris causing concern in an otherwise solid 1080p transfer of Carlo Di Palma's cinematography. Audio is offered up as a choice between lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 or DTS-HD MA 2.0.
The isolated score track by Georges Delerue is the only special feature (well, there's also the film's theatrical trailer). A standard feature of Twilight Time reissues, the booklet includes a new essay by film historian Julie Kirgo.
