This film will show never seen before footage of the Home of Seabiscuit, and will delve into the lives of those who are and have been transformed by Seabiscuit, both celebrity and non-celebrity.We’ll lead you on a journey of love, hope and healing. In 1940, legendary racehorse Seabiscuit and jockey Red Pollard overcame career-ending injuries to win the Santa Anita race that had twice defeated them and the largest purse in history: $100, 000.00. Today, that against-all-odds, indomitable spirit lives on in Northern California at Ridgewood Ranch, the Home of Seabiscuit.
The legacy continues. In the Fall of 2015, a brand new Frank R. Howard Memorial Hospital opened its doors thanks to the efforts of the Margie Handley and the Frank R. Howard Foundation. And, because of conservation and preservation efforts by the Seabiscuit Heritage Foundation, buildings are being restored and the land preserved so that future generations will have an opportunity to visit the ranch where they too can be inspired by Seabiscuit’s story.
Proceeds from the film will benefit the children and veterans in the Seabiscuit Therapeutic Riding Center, the new hospital vegetable gardens at Frank R. Howard Memorial Hospital, and the Seabiscuit Heritage Foundation for their ongoing efforts to maintain and protect this valuable piece of history.
