In 1938, as America was reeling from the Great Depression, a stocky, dung-colored, knobby-kneed racehorse named Seabiscuit captured the nation’s attention. Columnist Walter Winchell named him one of the year’s top ten newsmakers, along with Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Adolf Hitler. Meanwhile, “the Biscuit”’s equine image sold everything from ladies’ hats to oranges to dry-cleaning services.

For those who loved the film Seabiscuit, the real story of this amazing racehorse is a must-see. American Experience: Seabiscuit tells the story of the unlikely champion who became America’s hero and of the men who nurtured his potential and drove him to superstardom. Narrated by Scott Glenn, the 60-minute documentary animates Laura Hillenbrand’s best-selling book Seabiscuit: An American Legend, weaving thrilling archival footage of Seabiscuit’s major races with commentary by those who knew his owner, trainer, and jockeys.
