Man o' War was the star equine athlete of the early 1900s, giving thoroughbred racing a much-needed boost when no one was paying much attention to the sport. Born March 29, 1917, the chestnut horse only competed for two years in 1919 and 1920, but he won 20 of his 21 races, bringing international attention to Kentucky breeders and making the U.S. the center of the racing world. Due to the popularity of the horse, souvenirs were made with his likeness, a possible origin of this piece.
