Secretariat-more than just a story about a horse

A movie that can make a grown man cry is a keeper in my book. Secretariat is the story of the Triple Crown winner horse and the struggles and sacrifices his owner, handler, caretaker and jockey had to go through to get him to that final finish line.

I honestly didn’t have high hopes for this film. I didn’t think it was going to be as interesting as the previews and reviews claimed it was. Horses are beautiful but I’m not a horse racing kinda person. It started slow but indeed tugged at the heartstrings and gave you a glimpse into the owner’s motivation and love for the gentle giant. At the end of the film Rob was teary and I knew this was a movie that was going to hold a special place in our growing DVD collection. Not what I expected; this movie completely surprised us.

Behind every legend, lies an impossible dream. Witness the spectacular journey of an incredible horse named Secretariat and the moving story of his unlikely owner, a housewife who risked everything to make him a champion. Out of the gate with never-before-seen bonus features, Secretariat is hours of pulse- pounding entertainment for the whole family!

Secretariat was released January 25, 2010 on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD & Movie Download.
