Disney's Secretariat Gallops into Theaters October 8th

Diane Lane portrays Penny Chenery, a housewife and mother who takes the reins of her father’s Virginia-based Meadow Stables in the early 1970s – despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge. Thanks to the help of veteran horse trainer Lucien Laurin (played by John Malkovich), Chenery navigates the male-dominated sport and produces the first U.S. Triple Crown winner in 25 years.

The film was inspired by an incredible true story and suggested by William Nack’s book “Secretariat: The Making of a Champion.” Here’s a fun fact: Keep an eye out for the real Penny Chenery, now 87 years young … she appears in one of the scenes as an extra and was an important resource while shooting the movie.

Check out the trailer below.
