The inspirational tale of one of the most remarkable feats in sports history, Secretariat, is now available on Blu-ray Value Pack and DVD from Walt Disney Studios. Witness the spectacular journey of an incredible horse named Secretariat and the moving story of his unlikely owner, housewife Penny Chenery, played by Academy Award® and Golden Globe nominee Diane Lane, who risked everything to make him a champion.

When mother Penny Chenery (Diane Lane) agrees to take over her ailing father's Meadow Stables despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge, the true adventure begins. Against all odds, Chenery-with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (John Malkovich)-manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the 1973 Triple Crown thoroughbred racing winner, the first in 25 years, and possibly the greatest racehorse of all time.

The home entertainment debut of the critically-acclaimed Secretariat is at home in the winner's circle and will have audiences engaged for hours with never-before-shared in-depth interviews with Penny Chenery, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, deleted scenes and more on the spectacular journey of one of the greatest accomplishments in sporting history.
