beadie BS: 'Seabiscuit' - A Guy Thing? (20) RE: BS: 'Seabiscuit' - A Guy Thing? 07 Aug 03

I have been boycotting this film simply because it glorifies a "sport" where the human sits right down on tbe horse.

It's an offense to the memories of Dan Patch, Dusty Hanover, and Gratton Forbes!

Whoever decided that galloping around a track with a midget on your back is an event that has more grace, more elegance and requires more skill than piloting a natural pacing horse and sulky was out of his mind! Harness racing is the only true sport of kings.

That said, there may be some redeeming value to seeing the flick, if only because its so rare to have a chance to see any movie about any horse.
