Enjoy the rare footage of Man o' War romping in his paddock and the history of his life.
Okay, this video was made out of PURE BOREDOM. Wtf? This video is terrible, and I'm shocked about how many people take this for real. Nasty comments do not accomplish anything, they just tell me take away your privilege to comment. Comments disabled
On the Seabiscuit DVD this is in the special features. It includes footage of Man O' War, that I have never seen. There is a pretty cool angle of a race. I am not sure which race race this is. I know Belmont was run clockwise at the time, so this might have been his Belmont, Lawrence Realization, or Jockey Club Gold Cup

Barbra Livingston retraces the locations where Man o’ War raced, lived during his stallion career, and is buried. Those locations include the long-shuttered Havre de Grace racetrack and Glen Riddle Farm in Maryland; and Faraway Farm (now Mt. Brilliant Farm), Man o’ War Farm, and the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky. Empty and broken-down stalls abound yet, for Livingston, Man o’ War’s ghost is still – and will forever be – ever-present.
Man o' War, (Lexington, Kentucky, March 29, 1917 – Faraway Farm, November 1, 1947) is considered one of the greatest Thoroughbred racehorses of all time. During his career just after World War I, he won 20 of 21 races and $249,465 in purses

Man O War wins the 1920 Miller Stakes at Saratoga by 6 lengths. The final time for the 1 3/16 mile race was 1:56.3. Man O' War's two opponents were Donnacona (2nd) and King Albert(3rd). Man O' War carried 131 pounds, Donnacona carried 119 and King Albert 114. When the race was over jockey Earl Sande said he would never ride Man O' War again because he never worked so hard to keep a horse under control during a race. Sande said he could barely move his arms when the race was over.
