Horse Racing Legends | Man O War [02:11]
Man o' War, (March 29, 1917, Nursery Stud farm, Lexington, Kentucky -- November 1, 1947, Faraway Farm) is considered one of the greatest Thoroughbred racehorses of all time. During his career just after World War I, he won 20 of 21 races and $249465 in purses. By the prominent sire Fair Play, his dam Mahubah was by the UK Triple Crown Champion, Rock Sand. Man o' War was owned and bred by August Belmont, Jr. (1851--1924), whose father's accomplishments were recognized through the naming of the Belmont Stakes. Belmont Jr. joined the United States Army at age 65 to serve in France during World War I. While he was overseas, his wife named a new foal "Man o' War" in honor of her husband. However, the Belmonts decided to liquidate their racing stable. At the Saratoga yearling sale in 1918, Man o' War was sold at a final bid of $5000 to Samuel D. Riddle, who brought him to his Glen Riddle Farm near Berlin, Maryland. The underbidder at the auction was believed to be Robert L. Gerry, Sr.

Here's a list of what each one taught me: ~Cowboy: Cowboy taught me how to love a horse. He showed me that new horses don't have to be intimidating if you get to know them first, and build a bond. ~Quincy: Quincy taught be to be the leader. While this is true, he never let me get too pushy; horses have their bad days too, ~Titan: Titan taught me to be sensitive towards the needs of horses. His shy, skittish personality attracted me to him, and we each learned together about our strengths and weaknesses. ~Dexter: Dexter taught me how to mentor the horse. He showed me that training wasn't just about getting the horse to do what you want, when you want, but about the horse UNDERSTANDING what each weight shift, leg movement, and sound mean. ~Keener: Keener taught me to forgive and forget. The first time I rode this horse, he was in a bit of a paniced state. I ended up falling off after ** I ** got the wrong distance to an oxer. I needed 6 stitches after that fall, but the next week I was able to get back up on him and ride him perfectly. Keener is honestly one of the sweetest horses I have ever met. Finally ...
