Hard Tack- Seabiscuit's father. Son of Man O' War

Man O' War 3/29/17 - 11/1/47 Sire of 1937 Triple Crown winner, War Admiral and grandsire of Seabiscuit. Man o' War rescued American horseracing in the 1920s, despite competing for just two years. Following his death, he was voted the greatest thoroughbred of the first half of the 20th Century. Following his brilliant 1919 debut, Man o' War won three stakes races in 17 days, and when he retired 16 months later, he was a national hero. Man o' War won 20 of his 21 races.

    He was an exceptionally large horse, even for a thoroughbred. At his necropsy, it is said that they discovered that he had an equally large heart. He was quite a horse.

    How cool. My life that I have lived through friends. You are very fortunate.

Probably the most famous photo of the legendary racehorse Seabiscuit, beating "the fastest horse in the world" War Admiral at Pimlico, November 1st, 1938. Both horse and jockey George Woolf gaze right into the camera while all else is a blur. I love this photo.

Seabiscuit - descendant of Man O' War - confirmation was less than perfect - used as a training horse to help Granville learn to win races - but he overcame the odds because Seabiscuit had the heart of a champion

Seabiscuit and War Admiral...the infamous match race..and just think..Seabiscuit was told he was too small to race.

“In 1938... the year's #1 newsmaker was not FDR, Hitler, or Mussolini. Nor was it Lou Gehrig or Clark Gable. The subject of the most newspaper column inches in 1938 wasn't even a person. It was an undersized, crooked-legged racehorse named Seabiscuit.”- Lauren Hillenbrand
