Seabiscuit, the little bay Thoroughbred who surprised everyone by becoming a champion, was foaled in 1933.  Showing little promise as a youngster, he was eventually sold for $8000 to Charles Howard, who saw the potential in him.  With Red Pollard aboard and a new training schedule, Seabiscuit started his rags-to-riches story that has become the subject of several books and movies.  He symbolized the struggles of the working man during the Post-Depression years, trying to get ahead in a tough world, and racing fans loved him!  By the time he retired in 1940, following a serious injury and impressive comeback, he was the top money-earning Thoroughbred in history.  He enjoyed seven years of retirement at stud before he passed away, having sired 108 foals.

Breyer licensed Maureen Love's Stablemate model in 1975, but it wasn't until the 2003 movie came out that Breyer gave him a portrait model on a Traditional mold.  This release on John Henry was retired in 2008.

This guy is still attached in his original box.
