Man o' War

A Legend Like Lightning

by Dorothy Ours

This meticulously researched book brings one of horse racing greatest stars to life. Man o' War, born in 1917, grew from a rebellious youngster to perhaps the greatest race horse of all times and is enveloped in many mysteries. He set astonishing speed records and won with so much energy in reserve that experts wonder how much faster he could have gone. He came to fame while the colorful sport of Thoroughbred horse racing struggled for integrity. His only defeat, which happened only weeks before gamblers fixed the 1919 World Series spawned lasting rumors that he too was the victim of a fix. Newly uncovered evidence shows how human temptation and pressure collide with the genuine courage of Man o'War and brings this American icon to new life.
