Abstract:

Seabiscuit's fame as a champion racehorse was unexpected yet it was timely. In the 1930s, when American's longed to escape the grim realities of the Great Depression, Seabiscuit became the working man's hero. Despite his boxy build, stumpy legs, scraggly tail, and ungainly gait, he was one of the most remarkable Thoroughbred racehorses in history. Seabiscuit, from the PBS American Experience collection, illuminates the precarious economic conditions that defined the 1930s while taking a behind the scenes look at Thoroughbred racing. The film profiles the colorful cast of characters, including wealthy owner Charles Howard and his famously silent and stubborn trainer, Tom Smith, as it tells the story of how an overworked horse and broken-down jockey triumphed over tragedy and captured the imagination of the nation.
