Seabiscuit + A Day at the Racetrack = Kids Off The Couch

Seabiscuit is the true story of the little horse that could. An almost-forgotten thoroughbred ran a spectacular race right into the history books, raising the hopes of downtrodden Americans during the Great Depression. With a great performance by Tobey Maguire, and gorgeous period detail, the film got a blue ribbon from parents and kids alike. We spent a balmy day at the Racetrack -- our husbands have never been so psyched about an adventure -- and the whole family took in the heart-pounding thrill of a day at the races.
