A Special Night at the Movies watching Secretariat


Thanks to BlogHer and Disney, my two oldest daughters and parents were able to go to a special screening of Secretariat.  It was a special night for my kids as my parent’s were raised in Kentucky and grew up with the Kentucky Derby . I was only a few months old when Secretariat won the Kentucky Derby, then went on to win the Triple Crown. But his name was one I grew up with, and now my children know his amazing story.

The following is a review written by my 10 year old, Em.

Secretariat was a great movie! You’ll laugh, you’ll want to cry at some parts, but it still is a great movie. A lot of people clapped in the movie theater because it was just that good. I am so glad that Disney gave us those tickets for three reasons: number 1 it was an outstanding movie, number 2 we got great seats, and number 3 we didn’t have to wait in the huge line. We got to go ahead of everyone and be ushered to our seats.

Secretariat was a race horse in the 70’s. It was cool because they showed real footage of the race in some parts of the movie. It was extra special because I went with my Grandparents and they’re from Kentucky and some parts of the movie were in Kentucky. Go see Secretariat!

So if you get a chance this weekend go see Secretariat in action!
