"The mexican soap opera was one of the best that I have ever seen. While it was being aired I caught about 90% of it. I was so disapointed after I complety watch the dvd in full. It as nearly a third of it cut out. Most of the non critical scenes were deleted. Everything about Julia's sister Soledad was basically deleted. The part where she tries to play it off like she's pregnant by Gabriel was deleted. Everything about here having to choose between Samuel, and Leandro was deleted. Ever thing about Alvaro mis treating Lucero was deleted and just about everything about Lucero and Ramon was cut out. Everything about Julia and Sebastian's almost relationship was deleted. The whole funeral scene where Julia's first son dies is gone. Most of Nadia and Alvaro relationship hardly happend. This was just a huge disapointment for me. Please let me know if there is anywhere where I can get a full length version of it."
A Great Novela A Great Story

"When most people think about novelas or soap operas many people roll their eyes and believe it is the same melodramatic situations that repeat in each story over and over again. Well... they're right! Novelas are melodramatic, they are unbelievable and if you are a hopeless romantic like myself then you will always want to watch a novela at least once in a while because it is highly entertaining now back to the novela Apuesta Por Un Amor. I happened to watch this novela while it was being shown on Unvision last year and it had me hooked the moment I heard Luis Miguels song "Que Seas Feliz", as the novelas intro. This is the story about a young proud and strong willed woman by the name of Julia Montano known in town as "la Potra" (which in spanish means black stallion), daughter of a rich ranch holder in the state of Yucatan she challenges the mexican macho philosophy that both her brother and father have that a womans place should be in the house. Training horses, and managing her fathers estate she proves to her father than she is more than just the housekeeper thereby earning the respect of her father. However life takes an unexpected turn when she catches her fiance cheating on her with her best friend, her brother mistreating the womenfolk in town, and most importantly the arrival of an evil stepmother who only wants the wealth of her fathers estate. With her life in chaos Julia is distrustful and cautious with men until a lone stranger comes in town by the name of Gabriel. A drifter and gambler Gabriel falls heads over heels over Julia. (of course he firsts sees her when she is skinny dipping in the river) and promises "la Potra" that by the end of the year whether she likes it or not she will be with him by his side, as his wife, and most importantly in his bed. And thus begins the romance, the suspense, and the drama that is unfolded in Apuesta Por Un Amor (which in english means Betting on Love) where love, loyalty, and courage trample over evil, envy, and infidelity."
A great Telenovela a bad edited DVD!

"The telenovela was great, I don't need to tell you that we all know it. Passion, love, hate everything are there! But the dvd is very badly edited, so many great scenes cut, so many moments are not shown fully. You can't really get a taste of apuesta por un amor with just the dvd."

"Esta es la mejor telenovela que he visto en mucho tiempo las actuaciones de Paty y Juan son extraordinarias insuperables, nada que ver que la primera version colombiana de la Potra Zaina, Gracias por darnos la oportunidad de tenerla en casa."
