I have always had a love of horses first and racing second. Secretariat is by far the most amazing and we now have Zenyatta, what am amazing foal these two could have made!

I have a question for Ms. Penny. On the Belmont, it appears as if Ronnie didn't even have to use his whip. Was it Secretariate who chose to make the amazing pace of this race? Was he allowed to, as you Father said, "Run his Race" in it's entirety? It does appear to be so and for that I am so greatful you had such an amazing team to work with.

We have been racing since 1999. No horse of this magnitude, but the thrill of the race is truly amazing when it is your baby (horse) running. I do not believe for one moment I could have retained your style and composure during the races. I must say, just watching them on DVD is heartpounding and takes my breath away! And I alredy know the outcome!

All my love and best wishes always!

God Bless!

Secretariat's amazing perfomances for the Triple Crown were the things of legend.I was a small girl when I saw him win and my love for horses only grew stonger. Today, I own 5 of my own, including one "saved" thoroughbred mare. I love my horses as around here they are not pets, but family members. I will forever love the horse that cemented my unexplainable,undeniable, deep love of horses. I was so glad to see that they finally made such a touching movie about such a wonderful horse! Thank you Secretariat for touching a young girls heart and bringing such joy to her life.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can not say it enough. We just watched the movie, 'Secretariat' last night, and again this morning. Even though I knew who won, I kept jumping up and motioning for Secretariat to keep going!!! I've loved to watch the horse races and will never forget the year Secretariat won. Every time I watch his races, it makes me want to get out there and run, too! God bless everyone who was a part of his life. You have given us all so much to be inspired by - your determination and strength. Secretariat has set the example for even us lowly human beings. I look forward to meeting him in Heaven.

Rented the movie yesterday, and found the life of this magnificent horse and the family who cared for him truly inspiring, thank you for bringing this story to the masses without a lot of tear-jerking, sugary, depictions.

I remember watching every race that he was running I feel in Love with him at an early age of 18 and he still remains in my memories and love today, I have shared the excitement with my daughter whom is now 18. I had to buy the movie and have watched it numerous times. Passion in my heart has always been Horses from an early age. Such Magnificent creatures of God and so lovingly they will love you no matter what kind of day you might of had.

I loved this movie so much. It touches my heart, because my horse that is a recent ex-race thoroughbred is the great grandson of Secretariat.

Dear Penny: I just watched the movie and I can't get enough information about Secretariat now!!! I remember the Triple Crown and I was at the Arlington Race Track in Chicago and had the great pleasure to see him in person. He was so magnificant and awesome to watch. Of course I put a bet on him ($2.00 - ha!) with no intent of cashing in - but for a lifetime treasure. He meant so much to our society in the wake of the Vietnam War and gave so many of us something positive to behold. Thanking you and loving him for his greatness.

I have never followed horse racing, but I must say that this was truly one of the most inspiring stories I have ever seen. Secretariat had such heart, as did Penny. I will be buying this movie to watch whenever I feel the need for some inspiration. Thank You

I was honored to see Secretariat in "person" on October 4, 1987 and actually get to pet him. I was 16 when he won the Triple Crown. I visited Claiborne farm with my husband in 1987 and he took several pictures of Secretariat and me. That is a day I remember with happiness and enthusiasm. My husband passed away in 1999 and I have a new man in my life who shares my love of horses. He took me to see the Secretariat movie, which sort of linked past to present, being able to share memories and images of Secretariat with the two men in my life I've been able to love.

There are a lot of life lessons in the Secretariat movie. I remember when Secretariat won the Triple Crown and I said to my own mother that someday I was going to see Secreatriat in person. She told me that I would never get closer to him than I was to the TV set with Secretariat's picture on it. Never underestimate the power of dreams and determination.

I was only 3 years old when Secretariat won the Triple Crown, but one of my earliest memories is of being told there was a horse race on TV and running into the living room yelling, "I pick Secretariat!" because I knew he always won.

Even though I don't remember the "real" Secretariat I got a feel of what it was like watching the movie. I am amazed at how similar the crowd's reactions to him were to the reactions of Zenyatta's fans today. I never got to truly experience the wonder of Big Red, but I have felt the wonder of Queen Z. I am so happy that she will be the first recipient of the Secretariat Vox Populi Award ... just like Red, she captured our hearts and gave us the thrill of a lifetime.

Iloved the new movie,for one reason ilove horses and Diane Lane is one of my two favorite actresses! I have always loved the story of Secretariat he was unbelievable!It must have been amazing just being near such a fine horse. It just takes my breathe away watching him run. I have a black&white walking horse .horses are so magical when you look into their eyes-those windows to the soul,it like nothing else .You can feel what they are thinking,or I think I can. Its amazing their reaction to your voice or touch! I always feel when riding that two does become one,like your flying or floating.It must have been an awesome feeling riding Secretariat! I wouldnt take anything for the way a horse can make you feel ,,take your troubles away .God really put something special in their big ol hearts! Anyone who doesnt like horses dont know hores! Thanks for a great movie and remembrance of a great horse! Vickie Wilson Newport Tennessee
