Did You Know?

Trivia

Some of the closeup shots of the racing horses were achieved by attaching lightweight digital cameras to sticks and positioning them close to the horses as they galloped around the track. The horses got used to it, but the jockeys were sometimes startled by them. See more »

Goofs

The newborn foal depicting Secretariat was the incorrect color. The foal used was bay (note the black legs, mane and tail.) Secretariat (aka Big Red) was chestnut, so would not have had black points. See more »

Maybe Next Time They'll Make a Movie About Secretariat
2 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

The movie is great for families, as there were a number of children in the theater who really enjoyed the film. There isn't any off-color language or scenes, and it is well acted and well made. My main complaint is that it really seemed to be the Penny Tweedy story, and not that much about Secretariat. If you want to take your children to a well made movie with horses, this is a good film. If you want to learn about the greatest racehorse of the 20th century, go to you tube and watch old clips of the actual horse itself. If you're looking for a good movie about a horse, buy or rent Seabiscuit. That movie tells much more of the story about the horse.
