I really liked the horse whisperer and the man from snowy river... Books are always better than the movies. There is a great book about Man o' War out there and another about Ruffian. I don't remember who wrote them though....
I don't think Walter Farley wrote a Seabiscuit book. The only one I'm aware of is by Lauren Hillenbrand. Now Marguerite Henry wrote a book about Black Gold that I recall enjoying.
Beyond the Homestretch by Lynn Reardon is a great book about OTTB rescue. She runs LOPE down in Texas.

Oh, and Horse Heaven by Jane Smiley is a fabulous novel.
