NOW AVAILABLE ON BLU-RAY! Secretariat.com is pleased to announce the updated Blu-ray special collector's edition release of the acclaimed documentary film, Penny & Red: The Life of Secretariat’s Owner – produced by John Tweedy’s Landlocked Films and narrated by Academy Award nominated actress Diane Lane.
From her parents’ climb out of poverty to her own emergence as the “First Lady of Racing,” Penny Chenery has always been fueled by the love of horses. Forever paired with the great Secretariat, Penny’s personal story also exemplifies the rise of women in her generation. Weaving together previously-unreleased photos and films from family archives, and intimate conversations with award-winning filmmaker John Tweedy, Penny & Red reveals her story as never before.
This newly re-edited version of “Penny & Red” paints an intimate portrait of Penny Chenery, the owner of the champion thoroughbred Secretariat. The film explores Penny’s early struggles as a daughter, mother and housewife, her emergence as an owner and celebrity, and her redemptive role as spokesperson for a great equine athlete.
Bonus features on the Blu-ray include HD remastered full versions of the 1973 Triple-Crown races (Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes), a classic archival interview between Penny and sports legend Woody Broun, and rare original footage of the Sept. 15, 1973 Marlboro Cup when Secretariat raced against his Meadow stablemate Riva Ridge.
“A stunningly honest account of Penny’s life made more poignant and powerful by her unsparing self-reflection.” – William Nack, Author
