Reviews for Seabiscuit - America's Legendary Racehorse (Documentary) (2003)

EyeCraveDVD.com, July 29, 2003
"An entertaining and enlightening documentary presented with flair...makes a great compliment to the big-budget SEABISCUIT"


TheCritics.org, July 28, 2003
"...the real value of this documentary is the complete race footage of the "Match Race" between Seabiscuit and WarAdmiral"


Wade Major, Box Office Magazine, August 2003
"Extras include some riveting original radio broadcasts and a trivia game."


Dindrane, Needcoffee.com, September 2003
"The features list is quite impressive...I highly recommend this to anyone who loves horses or American history"


From the Back Cover
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. The heroes of this true story entered the stage as minor players and left as champions...true life American legends. In 1936 an unlikely cast of characters came together: SEABISCUIT: a burned-out knobby-kneed racehorse;

RED POLLARD: a down and out half blind jockey;

GEORGE WOLF: the "Ice Man," a cool and cocky rider;

TOM SMITH: an aging western trainer bypassed by the big time; CHARLES S. HOWARD: Buick dealer and horse owner, a self-made man. Seabiscuit's story played out against America's Great Depression, when one in four breadwinners was without work. Spectator sports, radio programming and movie theaters offered an escape and created instant celebrity, even for horses. When America needed him most, Seabiscuit became the working man's hero and the most remarkable thoroughbred racehorse in history! He made us believe in ourselves, in courage, in perseverance, in America. No other racehorse has come close to Seabiscuit's fame or his hold over the nation's imagination. This = program includes the complete archival Seabiscuit/War Admiral "Match Race," which is considered to be the greatest horse race in history. Riding Seabiscuit was George "Ice Man" Wolf, whom Laura Hillenbrand calls "the greatest jockey who ever lived." This documentary includes the real footage of jockey Red Pollard's (Tobey Maguire in the Universal film) thrilling victory at the 1940 Santa Anita Handicap. Also in this film is an extensive interview with Laura Hillenbrand, writer of the #1 New York Times bestseller Seabiscuit: An American Legend, and Bob Baffert, trainer of Kentucky Derby Winner "Silver Charm" and "Real Quiet."
