The name of Man o' War (1917-1947) is synonymous with racing excellence. Winner of sixteen major races in 1919-20, the stallion's reputation as one of horse racing's greatest-ever thoroughbreds is forever assured. Offered here is the equine equivalent of an autograph: several strands of hair from the U.S. Racing Hall of Famer's deep brown coat. Indeed, the hair was kept after collection in its owner Betsy Fuller's hardcover "Autograph" book, neatly secured by clear tape to the front of one 5-1/2" x 2" page. (A hand-penned caption -- placed in Betsy's cursive script -- precisely identifies the donor's identity.) The page and book are about EX. An especially rare and evocative, very personal piece of horse racing memorabilia.
