The story centers around three people, Penny Chenery, Ron Turcotte, and Lucien Laurin, who come together as, respectively, the principal owner, jockey, and trainer of the legendary horse.
It is being directed by Randall Wallace. Currently casting, on June 12, 2009, Variety magazine reported that Diane Lane will portray Secretariat's owner, Penny Chenery.
