Man O' War - Original Release
One of the first Thoroughbreds to be honored by Breyer with a portrait model, Man O' War is a name known worldwide. Foaled during WWI, he was named for the fierce fighting vessels. He won 20 of his 21 starts, often running away from the pack. There was no competition for him - He simply outclassed every horse that came against him. That one loss? He had reared behind the starting gate and his jockey had backed him up to line him up again when the starter dropped the barrier, leaving him unprepared and far behind the pack. He flung himself forward with a vengeance, overtaking horse after horse, and finished in third place. He was never behind in another race.
This fellow is from the final year of production, per our consignor, who owned several MOWs. He is Near Mint with a right eartip rub, tiny nostril rub, and a factory hairline indentation on his left hindquarter that looks like veining. He features subtle sooty body shading, and darker muzzle shading and inner ears.
