Blood-Horse Classics Library. 631 pp. 88 stallions profiled including Man O'War and his sons, War Admiral and War Relic: the Gray Ghost, Native Dancer; Triple Crown winner Count Fleet; and the undefeated Ribot. Eight-time leading sire Bold Ruler is discussed as part of the prolific Phalaris line while early 20th century stand-outs such as Black Toney, Broomstick and Blue Larkspur receive their due. Also looked at are stallions that made an iimpact on Thoroughbred breeding in England and France, including the brilliant Hyperion and Tourbillion. The author also examined how the bloodlines of certain stallions were better suited for American racing rather than European or vice versa. A five-cross pedigree and a race record are provided for each subject stallion whose careers have been updated for this edition.
