RI Selects:  Meet “Secretariat”

Saturday, December 5 @ 1 p.m.
Rural Intelligence Arts

Of course, the real Secretariat died in 1989, but Harbor Mist, one of the horses that will portray the record-holding Triple Crown winner in a forthcoming Disney bio-pic, will be visiting the region this weekend on his way back to California. Harbor Mist will perform tricks, and Rex Peterson, one of Hollywood’s foremost horse trainers,will fill us in on some of the behind-the-scenes drama of making a film with horses.

In 1973, Secretariat, owned by Penny Chenery Tweedy (played by Diane Lane in the film, which is set for release next fall), was the first U.S. Triple Crown winner in twenty-five years.  He set records in two of the events—the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes, that still stand today.
