Sony Pictures Classics has acquired worldwide rights to Sundance Fest drama, Jockey.

The U.S. dramatic competition title, the directorial debut for Clint Bentley, stars Clifton Collins, Jr., Molly Parker and Moises Arias.

An aging jockey (Collins) hopes to win one last title for his longtime trainer (Parker), who has acquired a championship horse. But the years — and injuries — have taken a toll on his body, throwing into question his ability to continue his lifelong passion.

The arrival of a young rookie rider (Arias), who claims to be his son and whom he takes under his wing, further complicates the path to fulfilling his dream.

Bentley directed from a script he co-wrote with Greg Kwedar. Logan Cormier and Colleen Hartnett also star.
