Just in time for the Oaks Celebration of the 136th Kentucky Derby, we have the trailer for Secretariat. Directed by Randall Wallace, it stars Diane Lane as a horse owner with a vagina (GASP!), that attempts to lead her thoroughbred to Triple Crown glory. John Malkovich co-stars as the horse’s trainer and personal stylist. Here that swelling score? That means you can lump this one into Disney’s growing catalogue of "Animals Who Defy the Odds to Blow Your F*cking Mind."
To differentiate it from Seabiscuit, the filmmakers could have taken a few liberties with the material. My suggestion: the true story of a horse who ate too much, and lounged around like he was in the Caribbean. Here’s an artist’s interpretation of what that may look like.
Check out the trailer after the jump. Secretariat charges into theaters October 8, 2010.
