The title character of "Secretariat"
is the thoroughbred horse who stole the nation's heart when he won the 1973 Triple Crown. He was so popular, in fact, that during the lead-up to the Belmont Stakes he graced the covers of "Time"
and "Sports Illustrated"
in the same week. But the star of the new Disney film isn't the horse himself—it's the breeder who put him on the map. Oscar® nominee Diane Lane portrays the inspirational Penny Chenerey, and she chats with Oprah.com about motherhood, the power of horses and why she may never return to the Kentucky Derby.
Watch a clip from the movie.
