Coming to theaters October 8, 2010 – WALT DISNEY PICTURES presents:
Based on the true story taken from the book “Secretariat: The Making of a Champion” by William Nack and written for the silver screen by Mike Rich, filmmaker Randall Wallace brings to life the remarkable true story of “Secretariat” that 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.—Walt Disney Pictures.
