Acclaimed as the greatest racehorse of all time, and more than half a century after his death his legend continues to grow. Mentioned with the same reverence as Babe Ruth, Jack Dempsey, and Red Grange. Winner of twenty races in twenty-one starts. His sons and daughters continue to influence the Thoroughbred breed today.
