About the event
Light refreshments, wine and popcorn will be available for purchase.
Join us to watch the true story of horseracing legend Secretariat! He won three very important horse races, called the Triple Crown in 1973—and he set a track record in every race that stands today. Secretariat was born and raised in Virginia. This horse from Virginia is regarded as the greatest racehorse of all time. Disney did a wonderful job of telling the story of the horse and his owner Penny Chenery.
A giant bronze sculpture of Secretariat is going to be arriving in Middleburg on August 8th and will be staying for a couple of days at the National Sporting Library. Hope you get a chance to see it too!
Proceeds from the Secretariat movie tonight benefit the Middleburg Community Center and Loudoun Therapeutic Riding.
