Few Americans triumphed more gallantly over odds, wore honors more gracefully, or were so honestly mourned after death than Sir Archie, forefather of such great horses as Man O'War, Gallant Fox, War Admiral, and Native Dancer. The depiction of the antebellum life of which Sir Archie was a part is as colorful and exciting as his career.
