Who would have believed that a knobby-kneed ugly little colt called Seabiscuit would become the most celebrated racehorse of all time? Grandson of Man O’ War, his head was too big, his legs too short, and his gallop awkward. His original owners gave up on him when hewas two, trying unsuccessfully to sell him. It took the sharp eyes of ranch foreman turned trainer, Tom Smith, to recognize the marks of a truly great horse beneath Seabiscuit’s appearance.

Moody recounts the true story of ahorse that refused to quit, a down-on-his-luck jockey determined to help his horse win, and the trainer that brought out the best in both.
