Have you ever wondered where to find the race record of Dahlia (ranked 50th) for instance? Where can you find the pedigree for Sunday Silence (ranked 31st)? What great racehorse of the 1910s was sired by the farm's teaser stallion? By the way - the answer to that is Roamer (ranked 99th).
Opinion on "the greatest" will vary considerably, and a case can be made for almost any that are preferred. But within the covers of this book, you are sure to find the one that YOU think was "the greatest". And on his/her page you will also find a four-generation pedigree, tabulated race record, photographs, and a compelling narrative written by the talented editors of the Blood-Horse. You might even learn something you had not previously known, like I did while reading aboutRoamer's parentage.
