Overview

Before the novel and award-winning motion picture, this "lost" documentary was filmed in 1939 by the real Seabiscuit's owner, Charles Howard. The film shows footage of Seabiscuit's birth, his early life in the stables, racing workouts with trainer Tom Smith, and even his very first race, which won Howard a then more than respectable purse of $50. The film also documents some of the horse's most thrilling races, among them including the photo finish at the Santa Anita Handicap, and the now legendary match race with War Admiral. Though the original 1930's version was filmed in black and white, Seabiscuit: The Lost Documentary has also been restored in a colorized version. ~ Tracie Cooper
