Another exciting summertime development involving "The Great Race Place" was the announcement that a Universal Studios motion picture (based on the best-selling book, "Seabiscuit: An American Legend", by Laura Hillenbrand), is set to begin production at Santa Anita on November 22, 2002. Created by Larger Than Life Productions, the Seabiscuit movie will be directed by Oscar nominee Gary Ross, writer of the critically acclaimed "Big" and "Dave" and producer/writer/director of "Pleasantville." Ross, an avid racing enthusiast, also serves as screenwriter.
The movie will star Tobey Maguire (of Spiderman fame) in the lead role as jockey Red Pollard, with active Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens cast in the prominent role of jockey George Woolf.
