Three-time leading American sire Fair Play, sire of Man o' War, pictured shortly after he was auctioned off in 1924 after his owner August Belmont Jr's death. Aged 19 at the time, he fetched $ 100,000. Bought by Joseph E Widener and moved to Elmendorf Farm, where he died on December 17, 1929. He was buried under a half-size statue of himself on a part of Elmendorf which is now known as Normandy Farm. Man o'War's mother Mahubah was bought at the same sale and is buried beside Fair Play.

Man O' War. The "mostest hoss" and the one by which all others are measured. Big Red is ranked No. 1 in greatest thoroughbred racehorses of all time. Winner of 20 of 21 races and known as a "sire of sires", two of his sons, Clyde Van Dusen and War Admiral, won the Triple Crown.
