Secretariat on Blu-Ray & DVD

Jan 11, 2011

Disney’s amazing [kwlink ]Secretariat[/kwlink] movie is being released on Blu-Ray and DVD on January 25! We love this horse-powered film, which tells the true story of the Triple Crown winner and maybe, just maybe, the world’s greatest racehorse – and so will you!

Horse Power

You’ll definitely find yourself cheering Secretariat on as he gallops his way to the finish line in this movie. While the horse was never really an underdog himself, the woman who took a gamble on him – a housewife named Penny Chenery Tweedy (played by Diane Lane) sure was – and that makes for a pretty inspiring story!


Stallion’s Story

When Penny’s mother dies, she leaves behind the family’s horse farm, which includes two mares pregnant by Bold Ruler, a champion stallion owned by the world’s richest man. A coin toss decides who keeps which unborn foal. Going on a gut feeling that her horse is going to be special, Penny hires a trainer and they watch as the huge colt is born and clambers to his feet. Penny spends the next years as the owner of Secretariat, who turns out to be one of the greatest racehorses of all time.
