The clip Seabiscuit meets Smith from Seabiscuit (2003) with David McCullough
The first time he saw Seabiscuit, the colt was walking through the fog at 5:00 in the morning.
Smith would say later that the horse looked right through him...
as if to say, "What the hell are you looking at?
Who do you think you are?"
He was a small horse, barely 15 hands.
He was hurting too. There was a limp in his walk,
a wheezing when he breathed.
Smith didn't pay attention to that.
He was looking the horse in the eye.
He was the son of Hard Tack, sired by the mighty Man O' War.
But the breeding did little to impress anyone at Claiborne Farms.
Get rid of him.
At six months, he was shipped off to train with the legendary trainer Sunny Fitzsimmons,
who, over time, developed a similar opinion of the colt.
Is that a racehorse or a lead pony?
The judgment wasn't helped by his gentle nature.
Where his sire had been a fierce, almost violent competitor,
Seabiscuit took to sleeping for huge chunks of the day...
and enjoyed lolling for hours under the boughs of the juniper trees.
His other great talent was eating.
Though half the size of other colts, Seabiscuit could frequently eat twice as much.
Fitzsimmons decided the horse was lazy...
and felt sure he could train the obstinance out of him.
I want you to hit him as many times as you can over a quarter of a mile.
When he didn't improve, they decided the colt was incorrigible.
The clip Seabiscuit meets Smith Part 2 from Seabiscuit (2003)
They made him a training partner to better horses,
forcing him to lose head-to-head duels...
to boost the confidence of the other animal.
By the time he was three years old,
Seabiscuit was struggling in two cheap claiming races a week.
Soon he grew as bitter and angry as his sire Hard Tack had been.
He was sold for the rock-bottom price of $2,000.
And, of course, it all made sense.
Champions were large, they were sleek,
they were without imperfection.
When they finally did race him, he did just what they had trained him to do.
The clip Winnings from Seabiscuit (2003)
That's it, Pops. We're okay now. It's all right, boy.
Yeah, we're okay.
Nothing to worry about.
All the time in the world, boy. That's it, Pops.
Nice lead. Just like that, boy.
Just like that.
What do you think, boy? You ready to go?
You and me. Let's go, boy. Let's go. Ha! Ha!
In the end, it wasn't the dams...
or the roads or the bridges or the parks.
Or the tunnels or the thousands of other public projects...
that were built in those years.
It was more invisible than that.
Men who were broken only a year before...
suddenly felt restored.
Men who'd been shattered suddenly found their voice.
Well, I just think this horse has a lot of heart.
He may have been down, but he wasn't out.
The clip Winnings Part 2 from Seabiscuit (2003)
He may have lost a few, but he didn't let it get to him.
We could all learn a lick or two from this little guy.
Oh, and by the way, he doesn't know he's little.
He thinks he's the biggest horse out there.
So you got big plans for this little horse?
Oh, yeah. See, sometimes when the little guy,
he doesn't know he's a little guy, he can do great big things.
Can we get a shot here?
See, this isn't the finish line.
The future is the finish line, and the Biscuit is just the horse to get us there.
"Just the horse to get us there."
The clip Changes in the nation from Seabiscuit (2003)
There were no suicides on Wall Street that day.
It was a myth that would grow over time.
The real effect of October 29 took a little longer to sink in.
By noon, all the gains of the previous year had been obliterated.
By 4:00 p.m., nearly $ 10 billion of market value was gone.
Over the next two weeks, the hemorrhage continued.
And before long, 25% of the workforce was unemployed.
A great national migration began.
Displaced families took to the American highway...
in the last possession that remained to them:
And all at once, millions of Americans...
had a new definition of home.
I made two dollars today.
The clip Santa Anita Race Track from Seabiscuit (2003) with Elizabeth Banks, Jeff Bridges
As long as we're talkin' long shots, I got a real doozy for you, folks.
We got a horse that's going off at 70-to-1,
and that's a short price, my friends.
This horse couldn't win a church raffle, let alone a $2,000 allowance.
Yeah, talk about a jump in class.
This is the skunk of the garden party.
Yes, he's the surprise in the punch bowl.
As a matter of fact, I'll lay even money that this nag, Seabiscuit, couldn't even finish six furlongs.
This is Tick-Tock McGlaughlin live at Clockers' Corner.
Wow. I wanted maroon. They only had bright red.
Oh, it looks great. You don't think the "H" is too big?
You seen the size of our jockey?
Okay. Favorite's that gray over there.
He's got a big late charge,
so lock in early with him and stay right off his flank.
Okay. Once our boy sees who the competition is,
he'll do most of the work.
But don't move till that gray does.
What if it's late?
Twelve minutes to post.
I don't think it's gonna matter much.
Come on in. Number 3, Pollard on Seabiscuit.
Hey, sahib. Kinda small, isn't he?
The clip Santa Anita Race Track Part 2 from Seabiscuit (2003) with Tobey Maguire
Gonna look a lot smaller in a second, Georgie.
I got five bucks says he doesn't.
Starter's poised. The flag is up.
And there they go.
Pirate's Gold breaks first, followed by Geronimo on the outside.
Silver Treasure is third, followed by Seabiscuit.
They're coming by the five-furlong pole.
It's Pirate's Gold, Geronimo, Hill's Army and Agua Dulce.
Son of a bitch! Ha! Ha!
Piece of shit bastard!
What the hell is he doing?
...opening up a 3... a 4-length lead...
What are you doing?
I'm gonna put you on the rail, you piece of shit!
Get off of me!
How do you like that, you son of a bitch?
You're gonna drop me, man!
The two horses are flying down...
You like the rail?
Here comes the cavalry charge.!
Knock me off my horse!
It's Silver Treasure on the inside.
Silver Treasure on the inside. Silver Treasure and Pirate's Gold.
And at the wire it's Silver Treasure.
Aw, damn it.
The clip Red and Seabiscuit from Seabiscuit (2003)
Come on.! Come on.! Come on.!
Let's go.! Come on, you sons of bitches.!
Let's go.! Come on.!
Let's go! Come on, you sons of bitches!
I'll take all of you! Come on! Come on!
I'm not afraid of you.
Sure. I know.
I know what you're all about.
Yeah. Bet you are.
Huh? Come on.
Come on, boy.
The clip Back on the track from Seabiscuit (2003)
Okay. You don't break him or anything,
but we gotta see what he's got.
You take him to the 5 pole...
and turn him loose.
Turn him loose? Yeah, son.
He's a racehorse.
Ha! Ha! Come on!
Ha! Come on! I know you got more than this! Let's show 'em, boy!
How's he look?
Come on! Let's show 'em, Pops! Come on!
Whoo! There it is! Yeah! Whoo!
Yeah, you and me! Let's go!
Your horse just broke the track record at Tanforan.
Sometimes they... they just, uh,
hanker for a little competition.
The clip Losing because of bad sight from Seabiscuit (2003)
He's gonna go to the lead, but he can't handle the distance.
So don't get sucked in. I won't.
Indian Broom could be there too.
We'll know they're holdin' him back if they use the ring bit.
Now, the one to worry about is Rosemont.
He closes like a freight train,
and he'll fight you for it at the end.
You gotta have some momentum built up...
by the time he makes his move.
It's still kind of soggy out there from the other day,
so try to stay off the rail where it's deep.
I figured I'd sit back about three wide.
Yeah, that's fine.
And other than that, just...
just try to feel it.
He'll tell you when he's ready.
The clip Losing because of bad sight Part 2 from Seabiscuit (2003) with Tobey Maguire, Chris Cooper
Come on, Red!
Yeah, come on. Go! Go!
Watch him. Watch him.
Come on! Come on!
It's not my fault. Not this time.
I told you look out for Rosemont. I thought I had it.
You stopped ridin'! I couldn't see him!
What are you talkin' about? He was flyin' up your tail!
Yeah, well, I can't... What?
See out there!
The clip Demand for a match race from Seabiscuit (2003) with Jeff Bridges
Gotta see him.! Come on.!
Look, I, uh... I really don't know what to say.
Uh, we appreciate it.
I'm sure the Biscuit appreciates it too.
He's just a little shy about speaking in public.
He'd thank you himself.
I guess, uh, you all are here today...
because this is a horse who won't give up.
That's right. Even when life beats him by a nose.
That's right.! Ain't that the truth.
But, heck, everybody loses a couple.
And you either pack up and you go home, or you keep fighting!
Isn't that right? Yeah!
do you want to see a match race? Yeah.!
Yeah! You do?
Yeah.! You wanna see this young fella ridin' that horse?
Extra.! Extra.! Biscuit on the warpath.!
Will there be a match race? It's all right here.
Extra.! Extra.! Biscuit on the warpath.!
I don't know what they're so worried about.
I mean, look at us. Our horse is too small.
Our jockey's too big.
Our trainer is too old.
Forgive me, Tom. And I'm too dumb to know the difference!
You'd think they'd want to race us instead of running away!
Ladies and gentlemen, I am staring at a swarm of humanity,
a sea of hungry faces demanding the match of a lifetime.
The clip Demand for a match race Part 2 from Seabiscuit (2003)
They have come here tonight in the cold, in the wind,
In the chill of a late October night.
Let me make my way over to one of them so you can hear it for yourself.
Excuse me. Excuse me. I'm sorry. Excuse me.
Ma'am, ma'am, if I may.
What brings you out here tonight with your three small children,
clamoring for a view of this little horse?
Because we want to see a match race!
I said, don't you think...
Mr. Riddle owes this country a...
Match race.! Match race.! Match race.!
Match race.! Match race.! Match race.!
Match race.! Match race.!
Fine, but it's on my terms.
Any terms you want.
Mile and 3/16ths. I won't accept anything else.
All right. Want a walk-up start with a bell.
We won't be using any contraptions.
You mean a starting gate?
And we run it here, at our home track.
That's not negotiable.
Mmm. Seems like a nice enough place.
Oh, I'm sure you'll find it quite comfortable, Mr. Howard.
The clip The ultimate match race from Seabiscuit (2003)
There he is!
It's Seabiscuit by a nose, now by a head.
He's leading War Admiral, pressing on him a neck behind.
They fly toward the clubhouse turn. Who will be into it first?
It's Seabiscuit, and he was there first and driving for the backstretch.!
Now, coming into the backstretch, it's Seabiscuit.
The clip The ultimate match race Part 2 from Seabiscuit (2003) with Gary Stevens
Going down the backstretch.
Now, back him off, son. Back him off. Back him off.
Come on back, George. Come on, come on, come on.
Now on the backstretch, Seabiscuit still with the lead.
Come on, Georgie. Don't fool around.
I sure hope you're right, Red. Here we go.
Goddamn it, Johnny.
It's now War Admiral.! It's War Admiral.!
It's Seabiscuit and War Admiral, neck and neck as they go down the backstretch.!
Close, Pops. Easy, Pops.
That's it. Whoo.
It's Seabiscuit. Now War Admiral.! Now Seabiscuit.! Now War Admiral.!
Not going now, Pops.
Do it now. Come on, George!
Turn him loose. Turn him loose.
Do it now, George!
So long, Charley!
