Event Details

Based on the remarkable true story, this film chronicles the spectacular journey of the 1973 Tripe Crown winner.

Against all odds, Chenery – with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin – manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.
