Description: John M. "Red" Pollard (October 27, 1909 March 7, 1981) was a Canadian horse racing jockey. A founding member of the Jockeys' Guild in 1940, Pollard rode at racetracks in the United States and is best known for riding Seabiscuit.

Seabiscuit (May 23, 1933 May 17, 1947) was a champion thoroughbred racehorse in the United States became the top money winning racehorse up to the 1940s, as noted in films and books. He beat the 1937 Triple-Crown winner, War Admiral, by 4 lengths in a special match race at Pimlico and was voted American Horse of the Year in 1938. A small horse, at 15.1h high, Seabiscuit had an inauspicious start to his racing career, winning only a fourth of his first 40 races, but became an unlikely champion and a symbol of hope to many Americans during the Great Depression.
