Forget that Michael Jackson movie; what I want to know is who is going to play Secretariat in the upcoming Walt Disney film on the horse’s life. They need five lookalikes to play the title role, and they have four; with the fifth lucky leading man to be chosen from a group of unknowns at The Secretariat Festival at the Bourbon County Fairgrounds on Saturday.

BALTO LITTLE LEAGUE TEAM POPPED AFTER WARNER WIN: The BALTIMORE SUN reports that the local kids are properly paying attention to college and pro football. A Baltimore-based Pop Warner team (12 to 15-year-olds) last week won their age-group national championship, defeating a team from Sarasota in the Finals in Florida.

Now if only Bobby Petrino’s Razorback charges can beat them to it.
