Storyline

Housewife and mother Penny Chenery 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 -- manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in twenty-five years.

Trivia

The horse used in most of the closeups was named "Longshot". Although "Trolley Boy" looked more like Secretariat overall, Longshot was deemed more "close-up friendly." See more »

Goofs

In Secretariat's first winning race depicted in the film, the race track announcer refers to the track as "Saratoga Park," but historically Saratoga Race Course has never gone by that name. See more »

Wonderful movie
2 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Secretariat is not only the first film in many years where both old and young can share the same theater; it contains the elements that make you both laugh and cry as most good movies should. From peaceful mornings at sunrise we experience exhilarating horse racing that brings pensive waiting for results of a race already in the history books.

I agree with the Movieguide comments: "SECRETARIAT is a very uplifting, inspiring, exciting movie about a true story, the story of a determined woman who raises one of the most successful, dynamic racehorses of all time. SECRETARIAT is stirring and joyful, with many references to God, Jesus Christ and the Bible and a pro-capitalist message celebrating American values…" Now, what's wrong with this picture? It is refreshingly entertaining.
