, says The Hollywood Reporter
In the story of the horse that won the 1973 Triple Crown, Lane plays the horse's owner Penny Tweedy, the housewife who broke though a gender barrier to usher Secretariat to greatness.
Walsh plays Lane's husband, a successful attorney who is accustomed to his wife being at his beck and call.
Malkovich plays a charismatic trainer who underestimates the power of Secretariat; Glenn is a southern-bred aristocrat who loses the horse in a coin toss.
Randall Wallace is directing from a script by Mike Rich. Shooting starts this week in Louisiana and Kentucky.
