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.

Trivia

The racing scenes in this movie are all re-creations except one: the Preakness, which is seen on an old television in the Tweedy family den. That's historical footage of the actual race. See more »

Goofs

In the 1969 scene where Penny's son John is building a model airplane on the coffee table, he is building the Monogram 1/48 scale Boeing B-29 Superfortress, a kit that wasn't produced until the 1980s. See more »

Quotes

Penny Chenery: [Chenery speaking to Secretariat the evening before the Belmont Stakes] I've run my race. You run yours.

Wonderful movie
2 December 2010 | by victorysongsterSee 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.
