A behind-the-scenes peek: Disney's SECRETARIAT

He was a magnificent colt that made horse racing history in 1973, garnering the first Triple Crown victory in 25 years; his image graced the covers of “Time,” “Newsweek,” and “Sports Illustrated” all in the same week that year; in 1999 this great stallion’s chestnut image was finally immortalized on a U.S. Postal Service stamp, and on Friday, October 8, 2010 Walt Disney Pictures releases SECRETARIAT, the film based on “the impossible true story” of perhaps one of the greatest racehorses of all time.

Rated PG for “brief mild language,” SECRETARIAT is a feature not only for equestrian lovers and history buffs, but a movie for families that stars Diane Lane as Penny Chenery, a housewife and mother, who “despite all odds and her lack of horse-racing knowledge” helps make a dream a reality in the competitive, male-dominated world of the sport of horse racing.

For your viewing enjoyment; (just released) a behind the scenes featurette, “Penny’s Story – Against All Odds” from Walt Disney Pictures’ SECRETARIAT.

Simply click on this link and you will be taken to a private screening. Enjoy!
