Ron Turcotte Documentary to Premiere Derby Week
The new documentary, “Secretariat's Jockey, Ron Turcotte”, will have its world premiere May 2 in Louisville as part of the 2013 Kentucky Derby week festivities.
The film, which was produced by the National Film Board of Canada, was directed by award-winning filmmaker Phil Comeau and produced by the NFB's Maryse Chapdelaine. The documentary follows Turcotte as he “returns to the people and places that have marked his storied life.”
The world premiere, presented by the Kentucky Derby Museum and Secretariat.com, will take place at the Baxter Theatre in Louisville. The evening will begin with an optional VIP cocktail reception at 6:30 p.m., where guests are invited to join Turcotte, Secretariat's owner Penny Chenery, and other racing celebrities.
