Star of Seabiscuit to Visit the Colorado Horse Park

Parker, CO— Fighting Ferrari, one of the equine stars of the blockbuster Seabiscuit is coming to the Colorado Horse Park this January. The bay gelding will call the Park his home away from home for a week while he is in the Parker/Denver area as part of a promotional tour.

The Park was chosen as “Seabiscuit’s” home base because the equestrian facility is well known for its high quality facilities and top-notch horse care. Fighting Ferrari has three public appearances on his schedule: the Denver Chamber of Commerce’s Boots N Business Luncheon on January 9, a photo opportunity at Burt Ford in Parker on January 10 and the National Western Stock Show Parade on January 13.

For the personable horse, this busy schedule is nothing new. Fighting Ferrari, one of ten horses who played the role of Seabiscuit in the movie, was chosen because of his good looks and wonderful personality. The ex-racehorse not only appeared in the film, but also helped promote the movie in a variety of situations, including at the Telluride Film Festival. Before becoming a movie star and promotions wizard, Fighting Ferrari had a career on the racetrack, but his only win came in a $5000 claiming race.

Fighting Ferrari now makes his permanent home at Skyline Guest Ranch, just eight miles from the town of Telluride. Here he can kick up his heels in the pasture and be a horse. He is in active retirement as he is learning how to live the life of a guest ranch horse.
