I Two Step Too, one of 10 horses that portrayed Seabiscuit in the 2003 movie about the famed thoroughbred, died Monday at the Kentucky Horse Park. He was 11.

I Two Step Too was euthanized because of a tumour in his nasal cavity, according to a release from the Horse Park. He had undergone surgery in December to remove the tumour, but it regenerated itself.

The horse was buried at one of the cemeteries at the Horse Park, where he'd lived since July, 2003.

"This horse was not only very popular with our visitors, but was greatly loved by everyone who worked with him," said John Nicholson, the executive director of the Horse Park.

"The only good thing about this is that we will continue to see him every time the movie is shown."

The Hollywood film about the scrappy racehorse Seabiscuit and his tenacious jockety was nominated for an Academy Award for best picture last year. AP
