The Seabiscuit Story consists of actual news reports from the 1930s and ‘40s, culled from the historic archives of The Blood-Horse magazine. Using firsthand accounts of Seabiscuit’s life and racing career—including his epic head-to-head victory against Triple Crown winner War Admiral—the book tells the amazing rags-to-riches story of this 1930s horse-racing phenomenon. It makes clear why Seabiscuit has been the subject of numerous books and films, including an adaption of Laura Hillenbrand’s international bestseller that was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. This is you-are-there reporting that brings to life an American legend.
John McEvoy (1936–2019) was the former editor of the Daily Racing Form and author of the Jack Doyle horse racing mystery series as well as a profile of the legendary racehorse Round Table.
