On This Date In History...
Glen Riddle Farm's Man o' War posted his eighth consecutive victory since losing the only race of his career when he won the Dwyer Stakes at Aqueduct by 1 1/2 lengths on July 10, 1920. Sent off at 1-5 odds, the son of Fair Play ran 1 1/8 miles in 1:49 1/5. The winner of 20 of 21 career starts, Man o' War was first on The Blood-Horse's "Top 100 Racehorses of the 20th Century."
