24/7 MOMS

Wednesday, September 15, 2010



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.

Genre: Drama

Rating: PG

U.S. Release Date: October 8, 2010

Director: Randall Wallace

Written by: Mike Rich (writing credit not final)

Suggested by the book: “Secretariat: The Making of a Champion” by William Nack

Special Film Notes:

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 87, is an integral resource in the making of the film. She also 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.

WIN: For the next four weeks our giveaway prizes will include one of the T-shirts or hats celebrating the latest Walt Disney film Secretariat.
