Belair Stud (eBook)

by (Author)

  • 27,409 Words

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.
