Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! Its amazing how walter farley took this horse (Man O' War) and his story and turned it into a fictional story of a groom and this colt! It tells of Man O' War and his many victories and of his defeat. How the groom and training of a horse can affect everything!! How a friendship never dies! A must read from a fabulous author!
