Seabiscuit Christmas Ornament
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.
Produced only for the holidays of 2003 to coincide with the movie's release, the ornament shows Seabiscuit in full racing stride. The box is styled to match the movie's promotional colors.
This one is Factory Mint in his original box.
