Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Jockey Ron Turcotte interviewed by the Toronto Star advises that trainer Lucien Laurin did not golf (he was an avid fisherman) and dressed rather conservatively.
  • Five horses played the part of Secretariat. "Trolley Boy", the principle horse used was selected by Penny Chenery in a Secretariat look-alike contest in Kentucky, and even walked the Red Carpet at the film premiere in Hollywood. The five horses, four thoroughbreds and a quarter horse were made up with special makeup to replicate the three "white socks", facial stripe and star.
  • The scene where Penny can't make it to Kate's play, listens on the phone, and collapses in sobs on the hotel bed was done in one take. The director said he was so emotionally involved in the scene he couldn't have shot another one.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In the background at many races, fans are holding up signs that read "I [heart] Red." The ad campaign that introduced the heart symbol in place of the word Love was the famous "I [heart] NY" campaign. It was not created until 1977.
