Seabiscuit Versus War Admiral
"Featuring the 1938 match race between two legendary thoroughbreds, Seabiscuit and War Admiral, this historically accurate account is suspenseful, as fast-paced as the horses, and packed with race jargon. Children will experience the greatest horse race in history, when Seabiscuit, the underdog, takes on Triple Crown Champion War Admiral in the 1938 Pimlico Special. They will feel as if they were at the race when the crowd goes wild as one horse breaks for the lead and another speed record is broken at the wire. They will find out who wins the match race of the century and what happens in the final seconds of the race that puts one horse in the winners' circle while the other is left in the dust. To help children better understand horseracing, included are a glossary of more than 60 racing terms and a diagram of a race track."
