Seabiscuit Wins Our Unbridled Enthusiasm

At our recent meeting, Seabiscuit: An American Legend, by Laura Hillenbrand, was described with unbridled enthusiasm. As we went around the circle, more and more positive aspects of the book were pointed out. If I remember correctly, Patty has done a lot of horseback riding, Loretta went to the Kentucky Derby on her honeymoon but didn't see the Biscuit there, I lived near the Pimlico track for a while long after Seabiscuit's day, and several others have been to the races.
IMHO, the movie is worth seeing, but the book was better! It is fun to see the races on the screen
