SECRETARIAT is a very uplifting, inspiring, exciting movie about a true story, the story of a determined woman who raises one of the most successful, dynamic racehorses of all time.

New to HULU:
HIDALGO is a modern twist on traditional cowboy pictures about a trick rider in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show who enters a 3,000-mile race around the Persian Gulf.
