Horses Named Seabiscuit Sculpture

Sculptor prepares life-size statue of famed Seabiscuit for its dedication at Santa Anita track, near Los Angeles, February 6th. The statue which is the work of Hulette “Tex” Weeler, internationally noted sculptor of horses will be unveiled in the paddock area of the Southern California track which was the scene of many of Seabiscuit’s triumphs. Seabiscuit himself, all time money winner of turfdom, will come out of his retirement on the Willets, Calif., ranch of his owner, C.S. Howard, to be present at the dedication ceremonies. On that day also Santa Anita will hold the “Seabiscuit Handicap” in his honor. In the picture “Tex” Wheeler, the sculptor, is shown in final work on the 2500 pound bronze statue in the plant of the Nelli Art Bronze Works at Los Angeles Jan. 27, 1941, where it was cast. Same was moulding. Wheeler works on the head. (AP Photo)
