À la mort de sa mère, en 1969, Penny Chenery, mère au foyer du Colorado, surprend tout le monde en reprenant les rênes de la ferme d'élevage de chevaux de course de son père malade en Virginie. Contre l'avis de son mari avocat et de son frère, qui veulent vendre l'entreprise grevée par le fisc, Penny s'obstine et mise tout sur Big Red, un cheval au potentiel remarquable. Bientôt, grâce à l'entraîneur canadien-français Lucien Laurin et au jockey Ron Turcotte, Big Red, rebaptisé Secretariat en l'honneur de la fidèle secrétaire du père de Penny, gagne course après course. Mais ça ne suffit pas. En 1973, pour pouvoir remettre son entreprise à flots, l'impétueuse femme d'affaires doit amasser la somme de sept millions de dollars. Le richissime Ogden Phipps lui fait alors une proposition: il épongera sa dette si Secretariat remporte la triple couronne, un exploit qu'aucun cheval n'a réalisé depuis vingt-cinq ans.
