Based on the remarkable true story, “Secretariat” chronicles the spectacular journey of the 1973 Triple Crown winner. Housewife and mother Penny Chenery (Diane Lane) agrees to take over her ailing father’s Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge. Against all odds, Chenery—with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (John Malkovich)—manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.

• In 1973, Secretariat became the first U.S. Triple Crown champion in 25 years, setting race records that still stand today in the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes.
• Penny Chenery, now 88, was an integral resource in the making of the film. She appears as an extra in one of the film’s scenes.
• In 1973, Secretariat graced the covers of three magazines the same week: Time, Newsweek and Sports Illustrated.
• Director Randall Wallace, whose directorial credits include “We Were Soldiers,” is the Oscar®- and Golden Globe®-nominated screenwriter of “Braveheart.”
• In 1999, the U.S. Postal Service unveiled a 33-cent postage stamp with Secretariat’s image.

Against all odds, housewife and mother Penny Chenery (Diane Lane)—with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (John Malkovich)—navigates the male-dominated horse-racing business, ultimately taking Secretariat on a spectacular journey to become the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and perhaps the greatest racehorse of all time.

  1. I loved this movie!! I thought it was amazing! Being a horse girl myself it gave me chills at every moment. I have the same love and the same passion that Mrs. Tweety did and I think that she was an amazing woman! I walked into my house after seeing this movie and my mom pointed out a picture to me of her scratching a horses face and asked me if I knew who that was. I shook my head no. It was Secretariat! I thought that was so amazing and I tolled her that from now on I am taking a picture with every horse that comes through our barn so that one day I can have that same type of meaningful picture.
