Seabiscuit

Question: I could not figure out why Red borrowed $20.00. Could someone fill me in?

Chosen answer: Red asked for $10 because he needed to see a dentist, and Howard gave him $20.

Question: Does anyone know what historically happened to Red's parents?

Chosen answer: I have tried to look this up, and there is no record of Red's parents. Most likely they just died of old age.

Question: why don't Red's parents come back for him, even when he becomes famous?

Chosen answer: They probably do, it just isn't shown. Alternatively, they could have died in-between the time we see the young Red and Tobey Maguire. That could be a contributor to all his anger and rage.

Trivia

The saddle worn by Seabiscuit for some of his races is, in fact, the same saddle worn by Phar Lap, who was Australia's, if not the world's, greatest racehorse ever. Billy Elliot, who rode Phar Lap to victory in the Agua Caliente (the world's richest horserace at the time), gave the saddle to George Woolf after Phar Lap died (under mysterious circumstances) in California.
