Going to the Big Race
On the final turn, he was ready to sprint. But there was nowhere to go: Seabiscuit was boxed in by two horses, one in front of him and the other to his outside. I still remeber that breathtaking moment like it was yesterday. My heart was jumping like crazy. And then gap opened. He swept ahead to win the handicap while running the second fastest mile and a quarter in American racing history. This time no one in the crown was disappointed. Of course, I wasn't an exception. Who knew? After Biscuit's injury, no one didn't set high expectations. But he did it again - he set another track record.
Seabiscuit was finished. It was time to retire and go home to Ridgewood Ranch. In six years of his racing carieer, he had competed 89 times, winning 33 of these matches, finishing on the board 61 times and set 16 track records. Having worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, he was worth more than his weight in gold. He competed in the Santa Anita Handicap when he was seven and another seven years later he died. Seabiscuit still is one of the most remarkable racehorses in history.
