Greetings to Seabiscuit fans from Laura Hillenbrand, author of award winning best-seller "Seabiscuit: An American Legend."


Chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS) is a profoundly incapacitating, incurable and largely untreatable disease that afflicts some 800,000 Americans. I have suffered from CFIDS for the last 16 years, so I know personally how devastating it is.

Funds are desperately needed to find a cure for CFIDS. For every Seabiscuit hat or sweatshirt purchased through this page, HorseHats.com will donate $4.00 to the The CFIDS Association of America. Please help us make progress against this disease.

Thanks,

Laura

Seabiscuit's career began slowly and consisted primarily of claiming races. By age 4 he was setting track records and earning championship awards.

At 4 Seabiscuit demonstrated his speed by setting records in the San Juan Capistrano, Massachusetts, Yonkers, and Riggs Handicaps. He also won the Brooklyn, Butler, and Bay Meadows Handicaps and was named Champion Male Handicap Horse.

Seabiscuit and War Admiral were the only competitors in the Pimlico Special of 1938, making it a de facto match race. Seabiscuit won by four lengths in track record time. He also won the Hollywood Gold Cup, a second Bay Meadows Handicap, and was named Horse of the Year.

An injury at 6 kept Seabiscuit in recovery for the year, but he made an excellent return at 7 in the Santa Anita Handicap.

Seabiscuit was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 1958.
