3 Bowen, Edward L. Man O' War Thoroughbred Legends, No. 1
Lexington, KY Eclipse Press/The Blood-Horse Inc. 2000 1581500408 / 9781581500400 First Edition First Printing; Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good- dust jacket

He only raced during his 2 year old and 3 year old seasons, retiring with a 20 victories in 21 races; ironically, his only loss was to a horse named Upset. Big Red, as he was nicknamed, was a dominant force not only on the track, but after his retirement he influenced generations, down until today, of racehorses, being one of the most sought after stallions. The famed horse Sea Biscuit [of book and movie bestselling fame], was his grandson, and raced in the 'race of the century', a match race, against War Admiral, a son of Big Red's. His statue, very fittingly, greets you at the entrance of the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, in the heart of the bluegrass region, renowned for its horsebreeding farms. In his day he was as big a sports idol as any human, the Babe Ruth or Magic Johnson of the horse racing world. Terrific book.
