The Colorado woman who owned 1973 Triple Crown winner Secretariat says actress Diane Lane does a good capturing her mannerisms and way of speaking in the upcoming movie "Secretariat."
Penny Chenery of Boulder plans to attend the Hollywood premiere of the film Thursday. Chenery and about 100 of her friends and family members saw the movie in a private showing in Boulder earlier this month.
She tells the Camera newspaper that she liked the film "very much."
The 88-year-old Chenery is an extra in it.
Chenery raised her children in the Denver area before moving to Kentucky in 1972, according to her daughter. Chenery returned to Colorado in 2003 to be closer to her children.
