Man O War thoroughbred | Will Harbut and Man O’ War. Photo by J.C. “Skeets” Meadors ...

Will Harbut led Man o' War in an undated photo. When Harbut died, one obituary listed survivors as "his wife, six sons, three daughters and Man o' War." The great Man o’ War won all of his horse races except one which he lost to a horse named Upset.

Man o' War and Will Harbut.  Will had never seen Man O’ War race, but at the time he became the stallion’s handler he certainly knew he was rubbing a living legend. Did Will also know that he had just met his soul mate, a thoroughbred who would make Will his (equine) family? Perhaps not in that first meeting, but I would wager that it wasn’t long before both horse and man knew that they had found the truest expression of themselves in the light of the other’s eye.

Man o' War and Will Harbut. Will was quoted once as saying Man O' War was "the most-est hoss that ever was.

"Man o' War didn't need no excuses. He broke all the records and he broke down all the horses, so there wasn't nothing for him to do but retire. He's got everything a horse ought to have, and he's got it where a horse ought to have it. He's just de mostest hoss. Stand still, Red."
