Review: Seabiscuit: An American Legend
by Laura Hillenbrand. The masterpiece that launched the current wave
of new horse racing books. An excellent book currently being made into
a movie.


Chris Harn Confesses!
The former Autotote employee admitted not only to rigging the Breeders'
Cup Pick Six and the test run at Belmont, but also to making duplicates
of uncashed tickets worth over $100,000.

Seabiscuit vs. War Admiral
Billed as the Match Race of the Century, this meeting in 1938 is one of the
most famous match races of all time.  Currently they are trying to recreate
it at Keeneland while filming the movie "Seabiscuit".


Azeri in the Dubai World Cup?
TORAYUME writes, "They've released a list of the American horses up for
the classic. Among the contenders? Volponi, Medaglia d'Oro, Sarava....
and Azeri. Does anyone out there doubt that the filly will whoop up on
that bunch like she did IG and Take Charge Lady?  Working on that Horse
of the Year '03 award (and yes, I'm aware the 2 year olds are serious...)"

Seabiscuit filming news
BLUEGRASSGUY writes,  "For the past week, Keeneland has been transformed
into Pimlico for the Match Race. Several Seabiscuits and War Admirals are
being used (and will be for sale, they are all off the track thoroughbreds).
There have been several farms used but a lot at Calumet. 4000 people showed
up during the coldest day (and our first snow) to be a part of the crowd at
the race. Nobody is getting paid to be the extras for this. Everybody was
in 30's dress and very few changes had to be made by the film crew. Chris
McCarron has been around for a couple of weeks. Gary Stevens was here for
a couple of days but a lot of his riding has been done by Ricky Frazier.
Tobey Maguire will be riding fake horses."
