Lonesome Glory was a tall, rangy chestnut Thoroughbred with a blaze who set the steeplechasing world on fire.  Originally bred to be a show jumper, he was hard to control in the arena, so he was sent to Bruce Miller to train for racing over obstacles.  There he excelled, winning 23 of 42 races in his career!  He was named American Champion Steeplechase Horse five separate years.  He became the first American-trained horse to win a British National Hunt race when he won the Sport of Kings Challenge in 1991, his very first year of racing.  He raced for eight years, finishing with an undefeated season in 1999.
