Overview

Founded in 1747 by Maryland governor Samuel Ogle, Belair Stud Farm created a long line of champions whose bloodlines live on in the great Thoroughbreds of today. Author Kimberly Gatto recounts the lives and races of some of Belair s most celebrated horses, including the only father-son Triple Crown winners, Gallant Fox and Omaha, and the legendary champion Nashua. The story goes beyond the stakes to tell the history of a Maryland racing institution and the people who made it a landmark in the sport--from the winning partnership between owner William Woodward and trainer "Sunny" Jim Fitzsimmons to the glamour and promise of young Billy Woodward, whose tragic death marked the end of a racing dynasty. Join Gatto as she recalls readers to the glory of Belair Stud, whose tradition of champions defined both an era and a sport.
