The Title is based on the catchphrase of a well known eccentric tipster that frequented the English racing scene in the first half of the Twentieth Century. Self titled Ras Prince Monolulu,, would adorn himself in fancy dress and proclaim "I gotta horse!", as he strode around the racecourses, selling his tips. He gained notoriety in 1920 by predicting100-6 outsider Spion Kop as the winner of the Derby winning £8,000 himself. (nearly £400,000 in 2018). He remained a popular character on the racing scene until his death the same year this movie was released. See more »

Set in England, it features a pop star, played by real life singer Billy Fury, who enters his horse in Britains most famous race, the Derby.
7 August 2006 | by mickramsaymdSee all my reviews

This is a very pleasant and happy and therefore nostalgic movie. It is simply wonderful for children of about eight and upwards. There's lots of animals in the movie with some very attractive dance scenes, and although there's not much of a story line, as it features, in the lead, Billy Fury, who was, in the fifties, sixties, and seventies one of Britain's best musical stars, the music in the movie is well above average. Fury was the owner of the racehorse Anselmo so there is some basis to the story that the movie portrays: a pop star and his horse. The movie was released in 1965 and unfortunately looked dated in comparison to the Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night" to which, in comparison, it seemed antiquated, however, there is nothing offensive in "I've got a Horse" which makes it all the more endearing in this day and age. Fury passed away, from heart disease, in 1983, however, interest in him has never waned and plans are being made to film his life with Johnny Depp playing the title role.
