Kim Corpany was working with Stan Watts' Atlas Bronze Casting foundry when they were contracted by Icon Bronze to make a mold and casting from the original bronze sculpture of Seabiscuit by Tex Wheeler. The original bronze statue of Seabiscuit was located at Ridgewood ranch near Willits, CA while the horse's owners Charles and Marcela Howard owned the ranch. After Charles passed away the ranch was sold and the statue was donated to the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame located in Saratoga, NY. Stan Watts and Atlas Bronze Casting's team of master mold makers traveled to New York State to make a mold from the bronze Thoroughbred statue. The then shipped the pieces of the mold back to their foundry where the foundry cast the pieces of the statue of the horse racing legend. Kim Corpany consulted with the foundry workers and also worked hands on to make sure that the new statue was finished accurately to match Tex Wheeler's original work. While working on this statue, Kim had the opportunity to take measurements from and study this bronze sculpture which had been sculpted while Seabiscuit was alive. Tex Wheeler worked using measurements directly from the horse, sculpting his statue of Seabiscuit on site at Ridgewood Ranch where he had the great horse as a model for his sculpture.
The new bronze statue of Seabiscuit was then delivered to the Seabiscuit Heritage Foundation at Ridgewood Ranch. The Seabiscuit Heritage Foundation is working to restore the ranch and offers tours to visitors.
Kim Corpany was later able to use the information and knowledge of Seabiscuit she gleaned from her experience with Tex Wheeler's great statue to create her bronze statues of Seabiscuit including this one:
