Destination of the Day: 'Secretariat', filmed in Louisville and Lexington, KY

Destination 1 in the series "Ready for my close-up"

Plot (from Wikipedia): Housewife and mother Penny Chenery (Diane Lane) agrees to take over her ailing father’s Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge. With the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (John Malkovich), Chenery manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be one of the greatest racehorses of all time.
