Secretariat

"The Impossible True Story"

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 25 years.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Lucien Laurin is shown berating and firing jockey Paul Feliciano after Secretariat lost his first race. However, Paul Feliciano did ride Secretariat in his second career start, which he won, before being replaced by Ron Turcotte.
  • In the Belmont Stakes, both Secretariat's winning margin (31 lengths) and his winning time (2:24) still stand after 37 years.
  • The racing scenes in 'Secretariat' are all recreations except one: the Preakness which is seen on an old TV in the Tweedy family den. That's historical footage of the actual race.
  • The Triple Crown trophy seen after the 3rd race is the actual trophy, not a replica. It was loaned to the production by the Kentucky Derby Museum, and was human-accompanied on the trip from museum to film set and back.
