Seabiscuit is a 2003 American drama film based on the best-selling book Seabiscuit: An American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand.

The film follows the book fairly closely, albeit taking the usual "Hollywood biography" liberties with times and places here and there in order to compress the presentation. David McCullough's narration gives the film somewhat of a "documentary" feel and adds to the drama of the story. There are also many horseracing scenes in which the camera is placed among the jockeys, giving the audience a realistic sense of "riding along" with the horses.

Seabiscuit (681 words)
Seabiscuit could have been made in the 1940s--and it was, as My Friend Flicka: two untamed spirits tamed by one another while various authority figures wisely cheer them on.
That the events in the film are taken from history is not really a point made with much weight or currency; when Ross goes to such pains to draw a line between Red and Seabiscuit, history becomes as devalued as the English 101 crutches upon which the filmmaker leans.
Seabiscuit is ponderous mainstream pap of the "suspended mote" school of controversy-free nostalgia, blazed a late-summer ago by the similarly piffle Road to Perdition.
Seabiscuit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2502 words)
Seabiscuit (May 23, 1933—May 17, 1947) was a champion thoroughbred race horse in the United States.
Seabiscuit was born from the mare Swing On and sired by Hard Tack (son of Man O' War).
Seabiscuit, on the other hand, was a pace stalker, skilled at holding with the pack before destroying the field with late acceleration.
