Secretariat’s legendary jockey Ron Turcotte is one of the few champions to have won the prestigious American Triple Crown. This is the remarkable story of Turcotte’s rise to fame in 1973, the fall that left him a paraplegic in 1978—after an illustrious career with more than 3,000 victories—and his emotional journey back to the people and places that marked his life. Featuring never-before-seen footage of Secretariat and appearances by Triple Crown winners Steve Cauthen and Jean Cruguet, as well as Secretariat’s owner Penny Chenery, this road movie takes us deep into the thrilling and dangerous world of horseracing, where Turcotte remains an enduring source of inspiration.
