Big Red lives on

Horse racing fans will want to come out Saturday to Gulfstream Park, but history buffs will, too. It’s an event to celebrate the DVD release of Secretar- iat, about the big horse that could (the thoroughbred broke records winning the Triple Crown in 1973). There will be a meet-and- greet with Otto Thorwarth, who plays Big Red’s jockey Ronnie Turcotte in the movie, and Kate Chenery Tweedy, daughter of the horse’s owner Penny Che- nery and author of Secretari- at’s Meadow — The Land, The Family, The Legend.

Sorry, Diane Lane (the film’s star) can’t make it.
