Truly great movie
3 January 2007 | by (Malabar, FL) – See all my reviews

This is a story of a time in our country's history that was dire in many respects. One of the alternatives was horse racing to soothe the soul and give people something to take their troubles away.

In this era comes an unwanted horse, an unwanted and misunderstood trainer, a jockey going nowhere, and a gregarious owner who made a fortune selling the first Buicks with no more than $20 to his name.

It is a story of ups and downs that a fiction writer could not conceive of. It is true life to it's highest point.

I have visited Ridgewood Ranch in California (Seabiscuit's home) and the energy is still there.

This movie tells the whole and true story and is well worth seeing.
