This is kind of late, but I just found it.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 8) - 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 tumor in his nasal
cavity, according to a release from the Horse Park. He had undergone
surgery in December to remove the tumor, 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 Horse Park's executive director. ``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 was
nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture last year.
