Old Backstretch Gossip: The Things I Wish I Never Knew
By On The Edge on August 11, 2014
It is old news; in fact, it was news a year ago when Penny Chenery's son John came out with a documentary about his mother and her celebrated horse Secretariat. I thought I knew everything there was to know about the racing great and his connections: all about his breeding, his racing times, his wins, his losses, his offspring, but it seems I didn't know squat at all about the really important stuff.Until today while pinning some stuff on Pinterest and finding the information, I didn't know there had BEEN a documentary out on him and his owner. I wish I had never heard about it, for once again somebody I admired has teetered on the pedestal I put the person on.Who the hell would have EVER thought this? . . .
