Will Harbut, Man o’ War’s groom, said “He’s got everythin’ a horse ought to have and he’s got it where a horse ought to have it. He’s the mostest horse.”
Man o’ War (March 29, 1917 – November 1, 1947) was an American Thoroughbred who is widely considered one of the greatest racehorses of all time. During his career just after World War I, he won 20 of 21 races and $249,465 in purses. He was the unofficial 1920 American Horse of the Year and was honored with Babe Ruth as the outstanding athlete of the year by the New York Times. He was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 1957.
