LEXINGTON, KY (November 23, 2004) I Two Step Too, equine star of the Seabiscuit movie, will be leaving his home at the Kentucky Horse Park temporarily, to walk the red carpet in Cincinnati. He will be making a celebrity guest appearance in the Birthday Bash Blowout at Wind & Withers Tack and Feed in Milford.
After his grand entrance, I Two Step Too will be available for photo ops (he’s ready for his close-up, Mr. DeMille) during the November 26-28 weekend festivities at Wind & Withers. As part of his entourage, I Two Step Too will be traveling by equine stretch-limo with his trusty sidekick, R.K. Walker, Equine Operations Director of the park, who will attend to the horse’s needs and oversee his safety.
I Two Step Too was one of the nine Thoroughbreds chosen to play Seabiscuit in the blockbuster film, and is now one of the star attractions at the Kentucky Horse Park. Previously hounded by paparazzi, I Two Step Too is enjoying the relative peace and quiet of retirement at the Kentucky Horse Park and graciously receives visitors at his dressing room in the Breeds Barn during park hours.
