Item Description...
Did you ever wonder what became of the principle characters after the conclusion of the Seabiscuit book and movie? Seabiscuit, The Rest of the Story, by Bill Nichols, answers that question. It takes the reader on a journey through the rest of the lives of Red Pollard, Charles and Marcela Howard, War Admiral, Tom Smith, George Woolf and the legendary champion Seabiscuit. Additional chapters deal with the descendants of Seabiscuit, the movie, author Laura Hillenbrand, artists who portrayed Seabiscuit, jockeys and Ridgewood Ranch, home of the champion. The author is one of the few surviving people who had a personal connection with the great Seabiscuit and those who were responsible for his success. He worked at Ridgewood Ranch as a teenager. He and his wife of fifty-eight years, Lillian, are the parents of two, Bob and Kathy. The Nichols own and operate Mares' Nest, a well-known Thoroughbred breeding farm in northern California and they are co-breeders of Seabiscuit's most successful racing descendant, Sea Orbit. Bill is on the Board of Directors of The Seabiscuit Heritage Foundation as well as The California Thoroughbred Breeder's Association. His book Seabiscuit, The Rest of the Story, has been described as a 'historically essential book.'

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Where was the proofreader?  Jul 7, 2008
The book promised more than it delivered. The author admittedly was not a writer, and it showed in this book. There were numerous proofreading errors, so no kudos to the publisher.

If one was a horse breeder, the information about lineage may be interesting, but to a reader who just wanted to know more about the legendary Seabiscuit, the book was a disappointment.
And Now You Know.....The Rest Of The Story  Dec 8, 2007
William H. Nichols has special insight on the legendary champion, Seabiscuit; he worked at Ridgewood Ranch as a teenager in 1944, when 18 foals of The Biscuit's were born and - years later - as co-breeder of Sea Orbit, Seabiscuit's most successful descendent in racing.

It is through the professional eyes, historical research and interviews of Nichols that the story of Seabiscuit, his most famous nemesis - War Admiral - and a host of individuals, including Charles & Marcela Howard, Red Pollard and George Woolf, are chronicled after the cheering of fans and accolades from racing glory faded away like the color of aging press clippings.

A lot of turf is covered in the 182 pages, with special focus on the ongoing work by The Seabiscuit Heritage Foundation to renovate the Ridgewood Ranch property, while making it home to descendents of its most famous resident. Nichols also chronicles many artists who portrayed Seabiscuit and provides an update on author Laura Hillenbrand - who Nichols initially talked with when she was doing research for her monumental Seabiscuit: An American Legend.

The never-ending controvery surrounding Seabiscuit's 1940 Santa Anita Handicap victory over stablemate Kayak II is reviewed in the last chapter, with Nichols providing what may be the best summary on who ultimately should have won that day and why.

This is a must read for Thoroughbred racing fans or those who want a lasting understanding of the rest of the story in what certainly is a timeless slice of American History.
Seabiscuit The real story  Nov 30, 2007
Great followup to the book giving minute details of Seabisuit's carreer and people around him. Written by one who had intimate knowledge.
Seabiscuit, the Rest of the Story   Oct 25, 2007
I loved this book! I read the Seabiscuit story and this one is an awesome sequel to the story. I have raised horses for 50 years and am always looking for GOOD horse books - this one definitely qualifies!!! If you love horses you will love this book. Written so well that you cannot wait to turn the next page.
Seabiscuit, The Rest of the Story - Review  Oct 25, 2007
Very easy reading. The book examines the disparities between the reality of the great Seabisuit story and the movie version. Very intersting.
