Nobody Flashes: American Greatness

Nobody Flashes

I just got finished watching the movie “Secretariat.” It’s the third time I’ve seen it, and each time I see it, I get tears.

It’s a movie about the greatest race horse to ever be born. And a story of a remarkable woman, Penny Chenery. Without the guts and smarts of Penny Chenery, who fought to show him to the world, fighting her own family during the process, this video and memory of the greatest race horse in history, would not now exist.

I remember watching this race on TV with my mother. Little was known about the woman owner at the time, until they made this wonderful movie. Neither one of us ever forgot that moment.

If you have never seen the movie Secretariat, do yourself a favor and put it on your bucket list.

It’s sheer inspiration of a great horse and a GREAT American woman.
