BEST of AMERICA BY HORSEBACK: SECRETARIAT - The PEOPLE BEHIND the HORSE
This is a personal and intimate look at SECRETARIAT, possibly the greatest racehorse to have ever lived with interviews of Kate Chenery (the daughter of owner, Penny Chenery); Charley Davis (SECRETARIAT's exercise rider) and also of Leeanne Ladin (the tour director and historian at, "The Meadow").
Kate Chenery recalls living in Colorado in her youth but summering at the family's farm, "The Meadow", in Doswell, Virginia; with memories of feeding all the horses and just having a great time each visit.
Charley Davis, probably knew SECRETARIAT better than anyone having ridden and cared for him. He said SECRETARIAT was his best friend and mentor and admitted that he thought he knew everything about racing but SECRETARIAT taught him much more than he could've ever imagined.
Leeanne Ladin, Tour Director and Historian of, "The Meadow", SECRETARIAT's birthplace and the former Chenery family breeding farm talks more in detail of the rich history and the famed horses who were bred and raced in the colors of Meadow Stable and also how the farm now hosts 90-minute tours of the mansion and barns in addition to having, GROUNDSHAKER, a great great granddaughter of SECRETARIAT on hand in one of the paddocks to greet visitors.
