This is a great story of a legendary horse sometimes referred to as the "greatest racehorse that ever lived". It has much more of a human interest plot that many other similar "horse movies" so not all the action is centred around the horse. Often it focusses on the people around the horse. This makes for a fuller, more satisfying movie. The racing sequences are brilliant and the special features of the original races etc give a great perspective on the reality of the plot and the amazing feats that this horse achieved. In Australia, our racing hero is "Phar Lap" (see movie) with more than a few similarities to the Secretariat story of hope and inspiration to a population in bad times. Great movie.
