On November 1, 1938, George Woolf and Seabiscuit met War Admiral and jockey Charles Kurtsinger. The race was regarded as the "Match of the Century." The event was run at Pimlico Race Course in Maryland. There was an estimated 40,000 fans at the track and another 40 million listening on the radio. War Admiral was considered the favourite. Seabiscuit won the race by four lengths. George Woolf always said he never had more fun on a racehorse than he did that day in 1938 at Pimlico.
