"Probably very few young people today have ever heard of Man o' War, the mightiest thoroughbred the American turf has ever known. His career came to a roaring stop back in 1920, after he had won 20 races in 21 starts. He had speed, stamina, courage, and heart, and he broke most of the existing records of his day.

"I was his trainer, and I can truthfully say there has never been another horse like him. He was the kind of horse from which dreams are made. One had to see him to appreciate him fully.

"The next best thing to knowing Man o' War as did the multitudinous throng of another day is to read this book by Walter Farley. Although partly fictionalized, it is a vivid, moving 'word picture' of Man o' War—or Big Red, as he was affectionately called by those of us who knew him—from the night he was foaled through all his racing triumphs. It will hold the rapt attention of all young readers—and older folks as well!' —Louis FEUSTEL, Trainer of Man o War
