Penny & Red offers intimate look at life, career of Secretariat owner Penny Chenery

The 2010 Disney film Secretariat offered one version of the life of the famed horse’s owner, Penny Chenery, as portrayed by Diane Lane. But that version was perhaps more glamorized and Hollywood-esque than the true story. To share a more raw and honest look at her life and legacy, Penny Chenery sat down with her son, filmmaker John Tweedy, in the documentary Penny & Red: The Life of Secretariat’s Owner. Originally released in 2013 – four years before Chenery’s death in September 2017 at the age of 95 – this revised, updated version of Penny & Red has been re-edited to include new interviews and information covering the end of Chenery’s life.
