She meets up with a friend of her father's who owes a foal to the flagging farm. Together, they obtain a foal named Secretariat who is very promising, out of one of hr father's mares. Though the horse gets off to a rocky start in racing due to a young and inexperienced jockey, his career becomes a sensation when he is handled by a better rider.
