Welcome

Leeanne Meadows Ladin, co-author of Secretariat’s Meadow – The Land, The Family, The Legend, will share the saga of this storied Caroline County Virginia farm, the family who loved it, and the great red stallion who carried their dreams into the realm of legend. Through artful use of exclusive family photos and film, lively narrative and video clips of Secretariat’s iconic races, you, too will walk in the hoofprints of history. He shattered records that have still not been broken!

Founded in 1805 as a working farm, The Meadow endured the Civil War and the Great Depression to be transformed by visionary horseman Christopher Chenery into an “empire built on broodmares.” His indomitable daughter, Penny, would save the farm from the auction block, and from those fabled fields sprang the immortal Triple Crown champion Secretariat.

As the new Equine Director of The Meadow Event Park, Ms. Ladin will also illustrate how the farm’s historic legacy lives on in the 21st century. A book signing and reception will follow the presentation.

Victoria Racimo of Palomino Entertainment Group organized this program and will introduce Ms. Ladin.
