Secretariat's Meadow
By

Rating
On 30 March 1970, Secretariat drew his first breath in a little white foaling shed on a historic farm called The Meadow in Caroline County, Virginia. Three years later he would leave the nation breathless as he captured the Triple Crown, shattering records and rivals alike. At The Meadow, "America's Super Horse" learned to gallop across its rolling fields and its loamy track. There, Secretariat first felt the calming hand of a groom, the taste of a bit in his mouth and the weight of a rider on his back. At The Meadow, the foundation was laid for a legend. Though much has been written about his spectacular racing career, the complete story of Secretariat's birthplace and the Chenery family who raised and raced him has never been told ...until now. And a Chenery granddaughter is telling it. "Secretariat's Meadow -- The Land, The Family, The Legend" reveals an intimate picture of this storied place from the viewpoint of Kate Chenery Tweedy, daughter of Penny Chenery (Tweedy) and granddaughter of Meadow Stable's founder Christopher T Chenery. Co-authored with Leeanne Meadows Ladin, the book tells not only Secretariat's story, but the story of an enduring piece of land where an "empire built on broodmares" eventually produced an immortal son.

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.
