William H. Nichols has special insight on the legendary champion, Seabiscuit; he worked at Ridgewood Ranch as a teenager in 1944, when 18 foals of The Biscuit's were born and - years later - as co-breeder of Sea Orbit, Seabiscuit's most successful descendent in racing.

It is through the professional eyes, historical research and interviews of Nichols that the story of Seabiscuit, his most famous nemesis - War Admiral - and a host of individuals, including Charles & Marcela Howard, Red Pollard and George Woolf, are chronicled after the cheering of fans and accolades from racing glory faded away like the color of aging press clippings.

A lot of turf is covered in the 182 pages, with special focus on the ongoing work by The Seabiscuit Heritage Foundation to renovate the Ridgewood Ranch property, while making it home to descendents of its most famous resident. Nichols also chronicles many artists who portrayed Seabiscuit and provides an update on author Laura Hillenbrand - who Nichols initially talked with when she was doing research for her monumental Seabiscuit: An American Legend.

The never-ending controvery surrounding Seabiscuit's 1940 Santa Anita Handicap victory over stablemate Kayak II is reviewed in the last chapter, with Nichols providing what may be the best summary on who ultimately should have won that day and why.

This is a must read for Thoroughbred racing fans or those who want a lasting understanding of the rest of the story in what certainly is a timeless slice of American History.

I loved this book! I read the Seabiscuit story and this one is an awesome sequel to the story. I have raised horses for 50 years and am always looking for GOOD horse books - this one definitely qualifies!!! If you love horses you will love this book. Written so well that you cannot wait to turn the next page.

Great followup to the book giving minute details of Seabisuit's carreer and people around him. Written by one who had intimate knowledge.

Very easy reading. The book examines the disparities between the reality of the great Seabisuit story and the movie version. Very intersting.

as a fan of the magnificent horse Seabiscuit, i was interested in what happened after
the horse retired from racing and what caused his death at only 14 yrs. old. the book
answered those questions and more.

This book is one of the best I have ever read and a wonderful glimpse into the history of a great race horse and the people who were part of his life. It also contains historical facts about a country and its people during the great depression. Seabiscuit and his accomplishments were a diversion from the hoplessness and grief that pervaded those times.It also touches on how the depression affected the sport of horse racing.
Above all, it keeps the memories of this great champion and those who loved him alive. Seabiscuit was wonder, magic and hope. When reading this book I felt as though I was a part of all that.

Format: Paperback
The book promised more than it delivered. The author admittedly was not a writer, and it showed in this book. There were numerous proofreading errors, so no kudos to the publisher.

If one was a horse breeder, the information about lineage may be interesting, but to a reader who just wanted to know more about the legendary Seabiscuit, the book was a disappointment.
