Laura, what great writing, you made me feel like I was there. Seabiscuit is my all time sports hero and to read about it was fantastic. I want the book and will cherish it for years to come. Thanks.

My dear friend Laura has written a great book about a great horse. I have been following this work since its inception - what a privilege! - and I will be the first to buy multiple copies for myself, all of my horse-y frineds, and everyone I know who appreciates good writing! Congratulations, Laura!

Laura - I grew up hearing alot about Seabiscuit (& Phar Lap, et. al.) from my grandfather Gene Normile (who ran Caliente with Coffroth in the 20s & 30s & ran Seabiscuit several times)...was just visiting my 95 year "young" aunt Madeline Normile McDowell over Christmas & she related how Charlie & 2d wife Marcella were "talked into" taking up horses during a dinner at the Howard's Atherton home which she attended with grandfather Gene & wife Lillian (shortly after the Howard's had returned from one of their African Safari trips after getting out of the Buick business...I have this and many more interesting stories, most I heard firsthand from grandfather Gene but more retold by my Aunt from her wonderful memory (Seabiscuit's saddleblanket "goodluck charm", Marcella's present from Charlie, why Marcella didn't like to see Seabiscuit race, & others)...looking forward to reading your book.

Really enjoyed your website. I look forward to the book and the movie, there are so few movies on our racing heroes anymore, but i digress. One question that I did have, the one photo in the slideshow has Barbara Livingston credited, um, she isn't that old and was hardly around to take that picture. Isn't this a mistake? We used to be penpals and I know I'm not that old-haha. Just wondering. Glad to see others still see thoroughbreds as heroes. Wonderful work!

being the son of the greatest starter of all time (George Cassidy), I guess I am a bit biased, I found this book absolutely captivating. I can remember some of the names although I never got to see Seabiscuit because I was born in 1947. Just imagine how racing would benefit from a modern day seabiscuit.

Hey my name is Nicole I am only 14 years old but I love Seabicuit. I have the book Seabicuit and I read it in one day. There was no way I could put it down. I must have read it a thousand times. No joke. How can I explain how I feel. I wish so hard that I can touch his mane and tell him that there was nothing he couldnt do. I cant wait for the book that you are writing to come out. Also I cant wait to see the movie. I can all ready see what he looks like but I want to see him every day. I use to have a horse that was a chestnut Quarter horse. When I use to bring her out for a run I would pretent that I was red and I was racing his last race. Boy was that fun.

Laura, as I told you several months ago, Seabiscuit has been one of my favorite racehorses (next to Ruffian) since I was a kid. I am so thrilled that you have written this book about one of the greatest horses of all time. I can't wait to read the book. As a member of the horseracing community, I think I speak for a lot of people on the backside of racetracks all over the country, it's about time someone gave this little horse the respect and recognition he derves. I only hope that one, or all, of my "girls" can enjoy the success that Seabiscuit had. No matter how my fillies run, I know that they share one aspect with Seabiscuit, a big heart. Thanks again Laura!

Hi Laura, haven't read the book yet, but I will, Seabiscuit has been one of my favorite racehorses since I was kid. I have an original signed and dated picture of Seabiscuit. It is one of my favorites in my collection. Glad to see he is getting the recognition he deserves.

The best horse I have ever come across was a horse that we believed to be a son of SeaBiscuit. He was in his 20's when I asked a friend at a bloodstocking agency to see if any gelding matching his description and markings showed up. The closest match, without knowing the tatoo number of the horse in the computer was a son of SeaBiscuit. I have heard he was a great horse, which would explain why my gelding was so wonderful. I will read the book and hopefully learn more about my guy's heritage. Unfortunately he passed away a year and a half ago at the estimated age of 27. I miss him daily.

Laura: I absolutley loved this book. I cannot say enough about it to my friends and co-workers. For a person who has never gone to a racetrack, has never been interested in watching racehorses on TV, has never met a jockey or felt any interest in horsetrainers/owners, this held me rapt every night. Foremost in my mind was the description of the match race with War Admiral - I get butterflies in my stomach recalling your vivid description of the strain of the horses at start. Thank you for describing such a wonderful slice of Americana and such a interesting animal.

Hi Laura: Allow me to get the gushing out of the way. "Seabiscuit-An American Legend" is the finest book about thoroughbred racing in the last decade. Your blend of history and sport brings the horse and the people who worked with him to an immediacy that makes the book difficult to put down. This will be the rare racing book that will find a wide market beyond the world of the thoroughbred. Thanks for this gripping labor of love.

Laura, Thank You for doing what can only be described as a labour of love. I grew up in Arcadia. As a kid I spent hours silently sitting and staring at that magnificent statue of Seabiscuit at Santa Anita. It's amazing how this horse's life can inspire a kid who felt different or less than. Your book will be a godsend for a whole new generation of equinophiles. I look forward to many a good reading of what promises to be, surely, the definitive telling of of a unique American success story.Best Regards, cw

I can't wait to read this book - or see the movie. The Story of Seabiscuit, with Barry Fitzgerald & Shirley Temple, is one of my favorites; I hope the new movie is as good.
