Racehorse Seabiscuit inspired Depression-era America, and got his start in California, where at least three statues salute the misfit winner.
At the old site of the Tanforan Racetrack, now a mall called The Shops at Tanforan, a less-than-lifesize bronze sculpture of jockey and thoroughbred gallops in front of the Barnes and Noble store. The nearby plaque notes: "World Champion Money Winner to 1938." After an injury, Seabiscuit was stabled and trained at Tanforan in 1939 for his comeback.
Tanforan Racetrack was also used during WWII to house thousands of Japanese internees before they were moved to other camps.
