SPORT films that work suc­ceed be­cause of an un­der­dog story but here we have one that mildly works while fo­cus­ing on the out-and-out su­per­star horse Sec­re­tariat, which came to promi­nence in the 1970s in the US when it won a bunch of big races. The story is in­spir­ing but told in that pop­u­lar, very Dis­ney, very fam­ily way where ev­ery­thing is cliched and safe.

Ex­tras:★★½ Fea­turette on the fa­mous horse – com­plete with owner in­ter­view and some archival race footage, plus deleted scenes with op­tional di­rec­tor’s com­men­tary and mu­sic video.
