Seabiscuit vs. War Admiral
Match Race Re-enactment

Date: 05/18/03

The weather didn't cooperate but the two human and two equine actors provided a perfect ending to a reenactment of the famous Pimlico Special match race between Seabiscuit and War Admiral. Once again Seabiscuit won by four lengths. Pimlico-based jockey Walter Cullum played George Woolf on Grapeshot who was Seabiscuit for a day. Frank Douglas was Charles Kurtsinger on Lord Roland who played War Admiral. Both horses are trained by Ann Merryman.

Below is a selection of photos from the re-enactment.


Walter Cullum and Grapeshot as George Woolf and Seabiscuit. I am not sure, but I think that is trainer Ann Merryman as the groom.


Frank Douglas and Lord Roland as Charles Kurtsinger and War Admiral.
