A thrilling sight, from daylight to dark, as the "battle wagons" roll along. Reel 2, Pimlico, Md.: In the horseracing classic of the century, War Admiral, the favorite, is beaten by three lengths by C. S. Howard's West Coast wonder horse Seabiscuit--a sensational match race that thrills 40,000 fans!|
