Grave of Sea Biscuit.

Seabiscuit's Grave and Statue

Very cool if you're a fan of the Biscuit. Kind of tough to find. About 8 miles south of Willits and 2.5 miles west off 101. A local helped us out with location. No gift shop, or admission, or any hype. Just a statue in front of the old ranch owners house, and the grave and statue in a parking lot near a school building.

No signage from Hwy 101.
