With his distinctive blazing white star on his forehead and deep red coat, Man O'War was a major star in the first half of the twentieth century. He was a legend in his lifetime and under the constant care of his groom, Will lHarbut, he was visited by legions of fans at his Kentucky Farm. Big Red emerges as an unforgettable animal full of personality, good looks, and phenomenal speed. It is a dramatic story as in race after race, other stables scheme to beat the magnificent horse with the tremendous stride.
