1930’s Man O' War Lexington Kentucky Horse Racing 26 1/2" Pennant

Offered is a Man O' War pennant that measures 26 1/2" and is in excellent-near mint condition with just the lightest amount of crinkling near the tip.

Man O War is considered by most to be the greatest thoroughbred racehorse of all time. During his career just after World War I, he won 20 of 21 races and $249,465 in purses. The final start of Man o' War's illustrious career came in Windsor, Ontario, Canada in the Kenilworth Park Gold Cup, a race that for the first time was filmed in its entirety. For this 1¼ mile match race, Man o' War was up against the great Sir Barton but easily drew away in the first furlong, showing a decided superior to the first Triple Crown winner, and was slowed to win by 7 lengths. Following his undefeated season of 11 straight wins, the superstar horse was shipped to Faraway Farm in Lexington, Kentucky, to stand at stud. Over his two-year career, Man o' War won 20 of 21 races, setting three world records, two American records and three track records.
