    • Synopsis
    • Seabiscuit was a knobby-kneed racehorse that captured the heart of our nation from 1936 – 1940 and grabbed center stage in news coverage around the world. He was the underdog, the horse that didn’t stand a chance. Ridiculed and underrated, he overcame the odds and won race after race. He gave hope to the many lost and unappreciated Americans of the Great Depression. Seabiscuit was an icon for them, giving them inspiration for a better future, for the possibility of success in spite of hurt and hard times.
      Seabiscuit’s Legacy is a documentary film about the horse-human connection and how that stimulates emotional healing.

      This film is about the healing that occurred at Ridgewood Ranch, Home of Seabiscuit, and what’s happening at the Ranch today, its programs for emotional healing, its preservation efforts, and its long history with the Frank R. Howard Memorial Hospital. Seabiscuit touched many lives and this film will show how his legacy continues.
