2017 marks the 100th anniversary of history's most famous racehorse, the one and only Man o' War.
He is an American icon, born in Kentucky who would go on to capture the country's imagination as well as 20 of 21 starts in his racing career. To celebrate his 100th anniversary, the Kentucky Horse Park is creating a year-long Man o' War celebration. There will be events both at the park and throughout Lexington with various themes built around Man o' War and his amazing life as a race horse and sire here in Kentucky.
