“Late in the fall of 1939, Seabiscuit’s handlers made an almost inconceivable announcement: Seabiscuit would run again in the Santa Anita Handicap scheduled for March 1940… This time the horse would be seven years old, ancient by racing standards. Pollard, whose injured leg was still fragile, would ride him.”
