Long before "Big Red" was synonymous with Secretariat, it was the nickname for another of racing's greatest horses - Man o' War.

The flamboyant racehorse was a champion, winning 20 of 21 races in 1919 and 1920. He set eight records - including three world records and a Belmont Stakes record that stood for 50 years. He often carried as much as 30 pounds more than his rivals and thought himself quite the celebrity when he beat them by several lengths. His personality, good looks, and phenomenal speed earned him the adoration of racing fans everywhere and of his owner, Pennsylvania horseman Samuel Riddle. When Man o' War's racing career ended, he had earned more than any other horse up to that time.

The stunning chestnut continued his phenomenal success in the breeding shed, siring 61stakes winners out of 379 foals. He was truly a legend in his own time.

Originally published in 1950, Man o' War will give you renewed reverence for this great Thoroughbred.
