Summary: Full disclosure: I met Secretariat, standing at stud at Claiborne Farm outside Paris, Kentucky, in 1974. Let me tell you, that Red was one very impressive horse. He bolted across the pasture to where we stood at the rail and tried to bite my wife's, um, well, let's not go into anatomical detail.
Excerpt: Secretariat is een onderhoudende familiefilm die zowel spanning tijdens de race van het paard als doorzettingsvermogen van de hoofdrolspeelster laat zien. De film laat zien dat, door te geloven in een doel, je ook werkelijk iets kunt bereiken. Niet opgeven als alles tegenzit maar doorzetten.
Excerpt: Never got around to checking it out at the theaters so decided to do a blind buy. And boy did it pay off. Secretariat is outstanding! It is very uplifting, exciting and inspiring all around. The racing scenes are stunning. And the cinematography was beautiful.
Summary: This movie is surprisingly good. The horse race scenes are the best to date in terms of visuals, sounds, and camera angles. This movie puts SeaBiscuit to shame. Secretariat was a great horse. But Man-of-war was also a great horse. The race between War Admiral and Secretariat was awesome.
