First, Kate and Penny will be going to LA for the long-awaited premiere of the Secretariat film on Sept. 30. We will look for them on the red carpet! Or maybe it will be a blue and white carpet for the Meadow Stable colors?
Then our jet-setting Kate lands in Paris, KY for the Bourbon County Secretariat Festival on October 2 where she will be meeting and greeting fans and signing “Secretariat’s Meadow.” On October 3, she is signing at the World Equestrian Games in Lexington for our good friends with the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation. That evening, Wayne Dementi (our publisher) and I meet up with Kate for the special screening of the film and a book signing.
On October 4, we have signings at the International Equestrian Festival in Lexington and at the Kentucky Derby Museum in Louisville. Wayne and I have to get back to Richmond on October 5, but Kate stays to continue signing at WEG and IEF through October 6.
On October 7, Kate rejoins us in Richmond for another round of book events through October 14. The complete schedule for the book tour is posted on www.secretariatsmeadow.com We promise to post lots of pics and video.

It’s starting to feel like Secretariat’s Derby where he ran every furlong faster!
