    American Classic Pedigrees

    Examines the pedigrees of the five American Classic races from 1914 to 2002. In addition to tracing each horse's sire line and female family, the author gives a look at how the horse has contributed to the breed. An in-depth appendix provides additional information on the level of inbreeding. Four-cross pedigrees of each Classic winner are included. Not just a book of pedigrees and statistics, here are the stories of the great horses of the time.
