Man O' War has been overshadowed in recent years by Seabiscuit and Secretariat, but Dorothy Ours hopes to rescue the great racehorse from the dustbin of history.
Tackling old beliefs with newly uncovered evidence, Man o’ War: A Legend Like Lightning shows how human pressures collided with a natural phenomenon and brings new life to an American icon. The genuine courage of Man o’ War, tribulations of his archrival, Sir Barton (America’s first Triple Crown winner), and temptations of their Hall of Fame jockeys and trainers reveal a long-hidden tale of grace, disgrace, and elusive redemption.
Seabiscuit was the grandson of Man O' War.
