The excerpt in TALK was magnificent and I am looking forward to making all my friends watch the movie, and thus experience the beauty and passion of the sport of horse racing and the story of Seabiscuit

I was lucky enough to stumble upon Laura's piece on Seabiscuit while flying home. I read it once, drymouthed, heart pounding. I read it again, to my wife and daughters, tears rolling down my cheeks. What a compelling story, beautifully told, full of drama, pathos and humanity. It was, simply put, the best sports story I've read in years and years. Thank you. Thank you.

Hi Laura, I have not read the book yet but and chomping at the bit to get hold of it. I have always loved Seabiscuit as a kid growing up. I am sure we can put him on the same top shelf with a horse that I was fortunate to ride named Secretariat. Sounds like it is a heart warming story and thank you for bringing this long awaited story to us. Jim Gaffney,

We recently received our last issue of Talk magazine and your article was by far the best I've read in the history of all the Talk Magazines we've ever received. I don't consider myself a strong reader but this article was absoultely captivating and had me at the edge of my seat from beginning to end. Thank you for sharing the excerpt and I'm in line at for a copy as soon as they arrive.

We have a highly intelligent gelding. To understand his unique mind and spirit, you need only think, "Seabisquit."

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.
