I am not much of a horse person, if I were I would have enjoyed Seabiscuit. Supposedly one of the greatest success stories of the Great Depression of the thirties, Seabiscuit was truly the dark horse who by mending himself, mended the people who took care of him as well. It has all the trimmings of a best seller book made in to a movie, which it is. A typical Hollywood feel good movie(well who said we don't need that?!) where the underdog comes from behind and takes the prize. In a way it also embodies the spirit of the people who made US what it is today - the ultimate risk takers with a never say die attitude. Seabiscuit is okay, if you like horses.
