I absolutely love horses of all kinds. Though I’m not too crazy about the horse racing industry, I am crazy about the racehorses themselves. My number one favorite racehorse is Seabiscuit. His underdog story and how he played a part in pulling the U.S. out of the Great Depression is one of the most inspiring stories. If you only know this horse’s name, you must see the movie Seabiscuit that came out in 2003 starring Tobey Maguire as the jockey, Red (Maguire also played Peter Parker/Spiderman in the Spiderman movies).
This video tells the story of probably the most remembered racehorse in history: Man o’ War. The video has footage of the horse in the field playing as well as racing. There are also interviews with jockeys and trainers about Man o’ War.
