Round 1, Match 8: Seabiscuit versus International Velvet

Seabiscuit versus International Velvet

Seabiscuit (2003)

True story of the undersized Depression-era racehorse whose victories lifted not only the spirits of the team behind it but also those of their nation.

International Velvet (1978)

Velvet's orphaned niece, Sarah, follows her dream of Olympic glory with her horse Arizona Pie.

Last time for round!


  1. Sorry, INternational Velvet, but you lose because of the plane scene. #scarredforlife.

    1. I solve that problem by remembering the timestamps and just fast-forwarding.

  2. this is a toughie!! I picked Seabiscuit because Toby Maguire told me I was hot at the after party at TIFF and bought a drink off me ahahaha

  3. never saw international velvet... and actually only watched a little bit of seabiscuit bc the horses were SO chatty... like c'mon hollywood horses really really don't make that much noise all the time lol

  4. A bunch of the eventing scenes for International Velvet were filmed at Ledyard International trials when I was a Pony Clubber and involved in volunteering. I so wanted to meet and befriend the star, and we could ride together, and she'd admire my pony... daydreams.
