Format: Hardcover
The seventeenth installment of the outstanding "Thoroughbred Legends" series from Eclipse Press, War Admiral by horse racing expert Edward L. Bowen is the story of a singularly remarkable racehorse. The only son of the great horse racing legend Man O' War to become as great racer as his illustrious his father, War Admiral claimed the title at the Triple Crown races, and even ran with a badly cut foot at the Belmont Stakes. The life, training, exploits, great races, and more of this noble animal are painstakingly chronicled in this fine animal biography which is especially recommended reading for racehorse aficionados. Also highly recommended is Edward Bowen's Man O' War: Thoroughbred Legends...

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By TheStickRules.Com on August 5, 2003
Format: Hardcover
While everyone who reads about Seabiscut will hear about how he defeated the great War Admiral, few who see that story will get the amazing true life story of War Admiral.
Ed Bowen did a wonderful job in capturing the trials and tribulations of one of the greatest Triple Crown winners.
In War Admiral's time they did not have the advanced medicine and treatments and training technique's they have today.
Also the Triple Crown was not spaced apart with 2 week intervals to rest.
Reading this book made me see that even though Seabiscut defeated War Admiral in their match race, nothing can ever take away from his triumphs and accomplishments.
War Admiral was one of the greatest horses of all time, and you should have this book in your collection.
Best Regards to all, MC - TheStickRules.Com

A Kid's Review on April 29, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This is a really great book. It tells the story of Man O Wars greatest son. It is a must read for anyone who likes War Admiral or the Sport Of Kings. On the subject about Seabiscuit Vs. War Admiral both of them were great noble horses who need to be "applauded to the echo" and maybe Seabiscuit just got the better of him on that day in 1938.
