Publisher's Summary

During the Great Depression, Seabiscuit captured American hearts from the soup kitchens to the White House. In this classic story, Ralph Moody recounts the true story of a plucky horse that refused to quit, a down-on-his-luck jockey determined to help his horse win, and the trainer who brought out the best in both.

Love the story of Seabiscuit!!!

Great story! As much as I love the story, the narrator could have been better. He sounded a bit marble-mouthed and slightly drunk. He tried to roll certain words like Vincent Price but couldn't pull it off. And the writer had a few points wrong such as Red Pollard predicted Seabiscuit would beat War Admiral by 4 lengths not 5 as this story stated and Red called the Biscuit "Pops" and not Pappy as this writer states.

Can't believe it's not fiction!

With all the ups and downs, twists and turns, and incredible highs and lows, you would think this was a work of fantastic fiction, not something based on a true story. I groaned, laughed, I winced, I smiled, I mourned, and I shed tears of joy. It was quite a treat!

I discovered this book as a kid, and l loved it then, but hadn't read it in over 30 years. I was afraid I would find that the writing and story wouldn't be up to my tastes as an adult, but I was pleased to find it was much BETTER than I remembered. The story and writing is compelling, and the performance was perfect. It pulled me in and never got in the way.

Loved this book. Kids thought it was great.

Great story line and loved Cameron Beierle reading Ralph Moody. Kids wanted to listen to again after the first playing.
