SECRETARIAT Promotional Giveaway

by Migdalia

SECRETARIAT, a family friendly movie, created by Walt Disney Motion Picture, is set to open nationwide on October 8th. 

Based on the remarkable true story, “Secretariat” chronicles the spectacular journey of the 1973 Triple Crown winner. Housewife and mother Penny Chenery(Diane Lane) agrees to take over her ailing father’s Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge. Against all odds, Chenery—with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (John Malkovich)—manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.

Director Randall Wallace, who is the Oscar and Golden Globe nominated screenwriter of “Braveheart,” made sure that Penny Chenery, now 87, was an integral resource in the making of the film. In fact, she also appears as an extra in one of the film’s scenes so make sure you keep an eye out for her!

You can view the SECRETARIAT trailer below.

 

 

Unfortunately, I was unable to see the private screening that was offered during BlogHer, however, after viewing the trailer, I know I will make it a point to see it in theaters!  Since its a true story, I already know how it turns out. What I don’t know is how Penny Chenery overcame the countless obstacles she faced. It was the 70s, women were just beginning to come into themselves. They were still not given the recognition they deserved in the workforce, much less in a male dominated arena.  Penny Chenery is an inspiration. She defied the odds, bucking society’s norm. She was not limited by what others stated she should be. She may have been scared, even terrified at times, but she continued on, overcoming  barriers to rise above the rest and win…now THAT is inspiring.

Although I was not able to attend the screening, I was given the opportunity to spread the word and host a  Latinalicious giveaway that will give ONE reader the Men’s T-Shirt, Women’s T-Shirt, Youth T-Shirt and Hat shown below.
