A very good horse
he's probably one of my favorite horses ever.
he did it all, he came back after problems. A true Champion
I just watched a documentary on him on youtube. It is very good and has some really cool facts about Seabiscuit. Here is the link to part one if anyone is interested in watching: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdXme8s-SCE&feature=relmfu

  • Emerald01 · There are several excellent documentaries about Seabiscuit that are available through different sources. Netflix is one of them. Sometimes you can catch one on public television. I highly recommend the book by Hillenbrand. It has amazing info about the horse, but also about racing life in general back then. The anecdotes are fascinating, and there is so much great information that was very painstakingly gathered. Whatever you do, don't watch the movie with Shirley Temple in it, though. Dreadful film! · 698 days ago
  • Buckpasser · Hillenbrands book on Seabiscuit is based on an article on Red Pollard and the Biscuit entitled "the one legged cougar and the three legged horse" by David Alexander which is in a book entitled The World of Racing from Eclipse to Kelso. Alexander was a racing columnist for many newspapers from the the early 30s on. I recommend this book highly as it contains a great deal of information about many different horses and owners. Alexander saw both MOW and Exterminator race and interviewed everyone from Riddle to Charles Howard ER Bradley and Allaire DuPont. Hillenbrand interviewed Alexander extensively for her book as he knew Red Pollard very well along with Howard and George Woolfe · 698 days ago
This horse proved that anyone can win on any given day, also a victim of improper training and neglect early in his career

I have just complete the Past Performance history of Seabiscuit. With a lifetime record of 89-33-15-13 and 1938 Horse of the Year, he was truly one of the great legends of racing. If anyone has any other videos of his races, please post them accordingly.
seabiscuit never finished out of the money. he is buried in an unmarked grave underneath an oak tree off of u.s. 101 a little more than 100 miles no. of san francisco.
If I had to name the best race horses I would have Secretariat, then seabiscuit Man o war, citation, whirlaway, forego, dr.fager, and ruffian. Yep thats my list. hehe
i always hear secretariat, man o'war, citation. but, seabiscuit was a legend. he toyed with war admiral in their match race.
Unfortunately I see some race data is missing...Seabiscuit raced over 30 times as a two year old and did run out of the money. Only after he was purchased and transferred to his Cal;ifornia owners did he take off as a runner.

  • Protagonist · I agree with you Larry , in the book Seabiscuit it is pointed out that Seabiscuit was used as the rabbit in the mornings. Then that mind set so well ingrained into him he would just go out in the afternoon and do what the EAST Coast connections had trained him to do,LOSEIt wasn't until his WEST COAST connectionstook over at Tanforan,and GGF, that he started to win . Seabiscuits TRAINER was Tom Smith and his Owner was Mr. Howard. His jockey was Pollard. · 1062 days ago
  • LAZMANNICK · Some info on Seabiscuit's two year old year. Seabiscuit actually started an unbelievable 35 times as a two year old. His first 5 races were against winners before he was actually entered in a maiden race and because of his antics and often lethargic behavior, by his second lifetime race he was entered in a 2.5K claimer garnering no interest from horsemen in claiming him in spite of the fact that he was by Hard tack, a son of Man o’ War, and out of the mare Swing On who was sired by Wisk Broom, a prominent handicap winner back in the day. The first 17 races of his career alternated between running in open allowance dashes, claimers, five MSW’s and a minor stakes race; all without a win to show for his efforts. It was his 18th race when he finally broke his maiden, on June 25, 1935 in an open $1000 allowance race. It took until his 32nd start before he finally won a minor stake, the Springfield Handicap for a purse of $2.8K. In all during his two year old year, which started on Jan. 19 at Hialeah in a 3F open allowance race, and ended with a 6th place finish on November 1st in the Walden Stakes at Pimlico, he had a record of 35-5-7-5 with two minor stakes wins. His schedule was so hectic that in April, June and October he raced fives times in each of those months. It is also interesting to note that in all those races, the only time he ran farther than 6F was in the final one, the 8.5F Walden Handicap at Pimlico. Although he raced on the east coast he moved around a lot and actually competed at 12 different tracks that year. · 1062 days ago

This horse is an inspiration to all the underdogs out there. I love him so much!
Throw out his two year old campaign which was absurd!
Seabiscut was special because he gave people hope. the country at that time was in a bad place and the country needed something to show a "down on your luck" story that turned around into something special. I think he gave the country a reason to look forward.
Why havent people commented about seabiscuit, hes like on of the best!

  • iThoroughbred · zxswordxz. I have seen that interview and have even read all his books and have yes read that Riva was her man. But after she realized the potential that Sec had for her family she really gave him everything she had. And I feel like if she hadn't then who knows what would have come? But once he hit that track she really perked up and saw what a fabulous horse he is and just needs someone to back him up! · 1235 days ago
  • Thoroughbred44 · I agree, Seabiscuit is one of the best horses, and I think he gets overlooked a lot, just like Omaha, or Assault. We pay attention to the new ones a lot of times, and that is why I think Secretariat is moving down. Because he is already first and so people don't even bother. Plus, I am not trying to sound rude or anything, but anyone on here, a horse racing site, should only give Secretariat a 10. But that's my opinion. · 1235 days ago
What a horse, he showed the world even the underdogs are champions!
