The Godolphin Arabian
The Story of the Matchem Line
The author, involved in Thoroughbred breeding and racing since childhood, studies the 'Matchem line' descending from the Godolphin Arabian imported to England over 300 years ago, a line destined to dominate the turf. This book tells the story of three centruries of that line on both sides of the Atlantic including Fair Play and his son Man o War. These pages are filled with their struggles, triumphs, disappointments and sometimes disasters.
