The handrail for the steps leading to overflow parking at the Howard Hospital campus includes an echo of the Howard family racing silks used in the days of Seabiscuit.

Hey, how about that? I googled and sure enough. So these folks created the hospital in your parts and were also involved in horse racing?

Yes, Charles Howard was portrayed by Jeff Bridges in the movie Seabiscuit. His place, Ridgewood Ranch, is now owned by a church, and is open for visitors, several miles south of Willits.
