Sea Biscuit VS War Admiral

Who doesn't love an underdog story...

Above-Sea Biscuit-"He was undersized, knobby-kneed, and not much to look at, and was given to sleeping and eating for long periods" more info on him here

War Admiral-"He inherited his father's fiery temperament and talent" more info here

I'm not into horse racing, I actually think it's kinda cruel-along with dog races-but this story is pretty amazing. You should read the book or rent the movie as well-the jockey Red Pollard is just as interesting. They had a special on PBS last night about the horses-check it here

1 in 3 Americans watched this historic race. Crazy! Sea Biscuit won by 4 lengths!!!
