  • Put It Back is the latest hope for keeping alive the Man o&#39; War sire line.

    Put It Back Keeping Sire Line Alive

    PORTER ON PEDIGREES, by Alan Porter <P>Were it not for Florida, there would now be no active male line tracing back to that most revered of American racehorses, Man o' War. The line had already begun to fade from prominence when Tartan Farms' colt In Reality came along in the stellar foal crop of 1964. Today, Bridlewood Farm's young stallion Put It Back, a son of Honour and Glory and a great-grandson of In Reality, is the latest young sire with the potential to keep this line alive. One of Put It Back's runners who is helping make this happen is grade I winner In Summation.
