The true story of Secretariat, the legendary horse whose record-breaking Triple Crown win has never been equaled, and his owner Penny Chenery Tweedy, a suburban Denver housewife who breaks through the gender barrier in her single-minded determination to usher her horse to greatness.
Secretariat will be released to theaters on October 8th, 2010.
Secretariat died at age 19, relatively young for a thoroughbred. He had been suffering from an incurable foot disease called laminitis, which made it painful for him to walk or even stand. When his suffering became too great, the heart-wrenching decision was made to end his life peacefully. Secretariat was given the honor of being buried whole in the Claiborne cemetary. It is traditional for horses to be buried "head, heart, and hooves", but certain special horses deserve special treatment. Visitors still flock to Claiborne Farm, bearing flowers and gifts for their hero.
I cannot wait!
