Penny Chenery, of Secretariat fame, latest from Boulder to get the Hollywood biopic treatment

Last month, we shared the trailer for 127 Hours, the James Franco flick about Boulderite Aron Ralston's loss of limb. But Ralston's not the only Boulder resident to go Hollywood. Penny Chenery's the main human character in Secretariat, about the Triple Crown winning horse she owned. Chenery, who raised her family in Colorado and returned in 2003, is reportedly headed for the flick's premiere in L.A. tomorrow. Get a sneak preview of the pic below:
