Officials at the National Musuem of Racing and Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., have called a press conference for next week to discuss the dramatic return of a Seabiscuit trophy stolen 50 years ago.
The trophy, won by the subject of a recent best-selling book, was offered for sale on an Internet auction site and through the work of the museum and law enforcement agencies, was recovered. It was stolen in a California burglary.
The trophy will be donated to the museum.
