March Real to Reel Movie: Secretariat

March 10 6pm, March 19 2pm Real to Reel Movie Secretariat Rated PG; 116 minutes; 2010

Based on the remarkable true story, this film chronicles the spectacular journey of the 1973 Tripe Crown winner. Housewife and mother Penney Chenery 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 – 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.
