There’s been a lot of discussion on the forums about the accuracy of the Secretariat move. I saw it and enjoyed it. Sure, it wasn’t the most accurate portrayal, but then again, except for us hard core equestrians who would watch a move that was really all about Secretariat!
Here’s an interview with Penny Chenery that gives her take on the movie. This was aired on the Mike Rosen show on October 15th. The interviewers are kind of dolts and obviously know nothing about horses or racing, but Ms. Chenery is delightful. (Note: you should fast forward through the intro which goes on too long!)
