About the Author

Kate Chenery Tweedy learned to ride at The Meadow as a child and later joined the family at races in New York and Saratoga Springs. At age twenty, she was in the eye of the whirlwind surrounding Secretariat and experienced his historic Triple Crown win at her mother’s side at Belmont. She has accompanied her mother, “the first lady of racing,” in her travels across the country to keep Secretariat’s legacy alive. Kate, an erstwhile lawyer, now teacher, editor, author and family historian, spent three years researching to do justice to the story of her remarkable grandfather and mother whose horses brought the national attention to that timeless place, The Meadow. She and her husband Jerry live in Littleton, Colorado. Her two grown daughters are educators and writers as well.

Leeanne Meadows Ladin also learned to ride at her grandparents’ farm in Virginia, racing pinto ponies on red clay fields by the Blackwater River with her cousins. She is the author of four books of regional historical interest, including the award-winning “The State Fair of Virginia – More Than A Midway,” which featured a chapter on The Meadow. She and her husband Gary live in Richmond, Virginia. Her website is www.freereinwriting.com

interesting, does not focus on the horses but the people and locations involved with them. Gives a more realistic take on the operation of the racing stable than the movie Secretariat. Loved the book by William Nack and this is a good companion read, the real world of horse racing.

This book is really good. It tells about the historical background of the Meadow and how it came to be. It also talks about all the owners of the Meadow and all the different people who worked there. It also talks about different racehorses that have been bred at the Meadow and of course it talks about Secretariat and his owner, trainer, rider, groomer, and all the other people who knew and took care of him. I love this book because it told me all these different facts about the Meadow that how it came to be and other facts that you will find out when you read it. :)

This is a fabulous book with beautiful photos that capture this wonderful family's story of love, perseverance, courage, loyalty, and oh yes, this great horse! This is a must read for all those who love these magnificent creatures, who love the land and respect family history, and who know something about the horse-racing world. I knew the property and knew of the family before Secretariat was born...this book is such a treasure. Big Red.Penny Tweedy, Lucien Laurin and Eddie Sweat comprised a team that remains unmatched.

This book is a must read if you like not only racing history but stories of a spectacular horse. I loved the movie and learned much about a racing legend, but this book adds all the information that the movie couldn't tell you. What a beautiful story!

Good book, nothing like the movie. Much more detailed, brings a tear to the eye at the end. If you're into horse racing this is a good book. This is a larger size book, with colored pictures.
