I followed Secretariats' races for many years. I saw his races on TV and now I have his movie. He had a big heart to win his races. He will live forever in our hearts.

Hello, I am just watching the movie, 'Secretariat'. I watched him back in 1973 and thought he was just a MAGNIFICENT horse. MAGNIFICENT! And, to this day, he still stands. I love the story, Penny and her family, the ups and downs of 'womens' issues she faced in those years.
I am thrilled and silently, gratified, that she stood her ground and fought in a difficult world of horses, men and business.

Thank you, Secretariat for a most memorable beautiful horse, the races to relive, scores that still amaze and confound the horse-racing world.

Long live Secretariat
Forever!

I have always loved Secretariat. I was 11 the year he won the Triple Crown. I saved a newspaper clipping from the Pittsburgh Press showing that famous shot of Ron looking back to see if anyone was around. When I watch that race it makes me cry. It brings such emotion out in me. I really love the movie and I have many items Secretariat in my home. He was one of a kind. So beautiful and athletic. I also think he was smart. He is and always will be the the Greatest Male Race Horse that ever lived. It is funny to me that no matter how many years have passed every Kentucky Derby time he is mentioned. He was the Great Secretariat! Thank you for sharing him and giving us the movie:)

Zenyatta is certainly deserving of this award. Thanks, Mrs. Chenery, for making it possible. No one will ever surpass the adoration that Secretariat enjoys, but it is fun to cheer for a very deserving Thoroughbred. Have a wonderful time in California.

WOW! What a wonderful movie and what wonderful memories it brought back! I was just 14 years old when Big Red won the TC and I remember how the whole Country was filled with excitement at his incredible achievements. It was an extra treat to learn more about you, Penny, and the sacrifices that you made as well. You are as big an inspiration as your beloved Big Red. God bless you, and may the spirit of Secretariat reside in all of us

Congratulations
Miss Penny on the announcement of Bernardini being chosen to sire Zenyatta's first foal. It couldn't be anymore perfect than if Big Red or Slew did it themselves. Thank you for sharing Big Red with the world, he's one of my all-time favorite champions. When I was a young girl, I watched him win the
Triple Crown. I was so impressed by the fact that all the other horses had ponies, but Red was a man, he walked onto the track by himself. He knew he was there to do a job, he did it, and went on about his business. He was my first Triple Crown Champion and I will always remember!!!! This new little one is already world-famous and he/she are not even breed yet! How'd that happened???8

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY, MY UNCLE BROUGHT ME TO A HORSE RACE WHEN I WAS YOUNG WITH MY COUSIN, AND TOLD ME ALL ABOUT "SECRETARIAT" I FELL IN LOVE WITH THAT HORSE AND FOLLOWED HIS RACES, I BOUGHT THE BLU-RAY AND I'LL TELL YOU IT BROUGHT ME TEARS WITH THIS HORSE!!! HE WAS THE "UNTACHABLE, UNBEATABLE HORSE!! AND NO OTHER HORSE WILL EVER COME CLOSE TO HIM, I WISH I HAD GONE TO A RACE TO SE HIM, HE TOUCHED ME IN MANY WAYS AND TO THIS DAY I STILL THINK OF THE MIRACLE HORSE.

Penny, I cannot begin to tell you how inspiring your story and your horse were to me. After learning that Secretariat's heart was almost twice the normal size, it is my belief that you too have a special heart that gave you the daily strenght to make this special animal everything he was. Every champion has someone in his corner that makes them the champion they are or were. To me your courage and will to succeed made Secretariat the never again equalled champion he was. I would have given anything to be in the stands that day at Belmont to see not only Secretariat win the last leg of the triple crown by 31 lenghts, but to be part of the greatest feat in all of horse racing history in seeing the last quarter mile ran in 23 seconds. Your story and the movie will certainly inspire many other to be all they can be and to never again stand still when the trumpet sounds. May God bless you always. A Secretariat fan forever, Mark Pace

I just wanted to thank you. I fell in love with horse racing about a year before Secretariat's incredible run because of the Sports Illustrated coverage. I watched as he ran each race on TV. In the summer of 1984 I believe while visiting my Aunt's who lived outside Cincinnati they asked what we wanted to do. One of my Aunt's husband's had been a horse trainer. My reply could we go to Paris Kentucky to Claiborne Farm to see Secretariat. My Aunt made a call and that afternoon we where there. The groomsmen I believe took us on a tour that took about two hours thru the fences and the stables. When we saw Secretariat it was like we were looking at perfection. He came down to us, he posed with my wife and daughter who was under a year old and I got to pat him.
I have met 7 or 8 hall of fame athletes but none were in his class. I just wanted to say thanks.

I just saw movie "Secretariat" and I really loved it, then I saw further information online. I have to say this was an amazing Secretariat. I am from Pakistan and I travel to Dubai all the time, I love horses and I train horses too. Here in this part of the world we love horses religiously. Great horses Arabian horses. So I know how it feels like falling in love with this great Secretariat. So thank you for this web and a real great story. I wish I could see Secretariat in real.

I remember watching the Kentucky Derbv race the year Secretariat won and then watched the other two races, The Belmont and the Preakness. He captured my heart from the Kentucky Derby race and have loved Big Red ever since. I waited anxiously for the movie to come out so I could buy it. Just watched it and absolutely loved the movie. Rest in peace Red.

i just got to watch the movie this morning and thought it was absolutely wounderfull..and i also think that him and zenyatta are alike in many ways. They are what it is all about the passion of racing. Its not just about the money, its about the love for the horses and the sport.

Since 1973 I've been enthralled by that gorgeous chestnut with the three white socks. I saw the movie but as someone who is familiar with the story I thought it left big parts out One of those parts was the great Riva Ridge and the fact that Ms. Chenery won 5 TC races in two consecutive years. That feat will stand forever specially with the current state of racing.Otherwise the movie was interesting and non racing fans were able to follow the plot even if they were not 100% familiar with the story.
