Synopsis

Synopsis

Before Secretariat and Seabiscuit, Man o’ War set the standard for horse racing.

Walter Farley, the creator of the Black Stallion, chronicles the mightiest racer ever seen on an American racetrack from his surging power and blistering speed to his overwhelming desire to run!

Here is the unofficial biography of the “red giant,” from the moment he was foaled through all of his racing triumphs. Winning an astonishing 20 of his 21 starts, Man o’ War became a legend, and captured the heart of a nation before he retired in 1920 to sire Hard Tack, the father of Seabiscuit, and Triple Crown winner War Admiral.

With his seamless storytelling, Farley tells the life story of the horse most horse lovers continue to regard as America’s greatest thoroughbred. Told through the eyes of a fictional stableboy, Danny Ryan, Farley makes the intricate world of the “Sport of Kings” accessible and exciting to horse lovers and racing fans of all ages.

"An exciting, moving piece of fiction based on the facts about one of the greatest horses of all time. The feeling for horses, horse breeding and training, and horse racing is masterfully handled. Thrilling, highly recommended."--(starred) School Library Journal.
