Sort of He was an awesome little underdog kind of racehorse during the Great Depression, named (mostly) after his father Hard Tack, which to my understanding is a hard biscuit/cracker kind of thing that doesn't go stale and was used by sailors and Civil War soldiers.
Nowadays, I'm hoping Funny Cide wins the Triple Crown.. gotta love the underdog!
The story of Seabiscuit was just too good to be true. There's a book out about him and there's soon to be a movie based on the book. You really need to check him out. Oh, you just don't know how good his story is. I fell in love with him.

Whatcha think? Triple Crown winner? There hasn't been one since the year I was born. And the first gelding since the 20s(?)! I hope it happens.
