Cheering on Secretariat again

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 Secretariat, about the horse that broke records and won 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 Chenery and author of Secretariat’s Meadow — The Land, The Family, The Legend.

Info: 7-10 a.m.: breakfast with Otto and Kate; 10-5: autograph signing. 954-454-7000,


Tim Hardaway is making headlines again.

The Detroit News reports the former Miami Heat star, 44, is still living in the crib the team bought for him after the IRS placed a lien on it for a $120,000 debt.

Miami Heat Limited Partnership bought the five-bedroom house (with basketball court) on Sept. 3, 2010 for $1.9 million. It’s now worth $2.5 million.

Hardaway played for the Heat from 1996 to 2001 and is currently in the corporate offices.

The former point guard, who claims he is doing fine financially, told the paper the lien was dealt with. Public records show it’s still active.

“I’ll talk to my people and get on that,” he said.
